Friday Fizz - Pimms

Pimms Ingredients from the mint+fizz Kitchen!

Pimms is an English summer cocktail made of a gin-based liquer.  I have been a huge fan of it since university days when we would mix together a huge batch and chillout on hot summer days. Most recipes include lemonade but I believe that only mixing lemonade makes it just a little bit too sweet. The special ingredient?  Dry ginger ale!

My take on the perfect Pimms is below and is ideally made in a drink dispenser or large jug.  There is very little point making just the one in a highball glass!

Ingredients you will need:

pimms no 1 cup, lemonade (fizzy not still), dry ginger ale, fresh mint leaves, sliced oranges, sliced cucumber or cucumber sticks, sliced lime, whole or halved strawberries, ice and a mint sprig for garnishing


1.  1 part pimms to 2 parts lemonade and 2 parts dry ginger ale or
2.  1 part pimms to 3 parts lemonade and 1 part dry ginger ale (sweeter) or
3.  1 part pimms to 1 part lemonade and 3 parts dry ginger ale
4.  Add mint leaves, orange, lime, strawberry and cucumber
5.  Mix and stir well
6.  Pour into a glass and add ice cubes
7.  Garnish with a sprig of mint
8.  Sip, sit back and enjoy!
