Welcome to Summer!

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of my usual gin & tonic. Need a new drink for summer? Let’s take a jump across the pond for inspiration. How about a Pimm’s Cup?

Pimm’s No. 1 is a gin-based liqueur originally created in London as a health tonic. I mean, come on, weren’t all drinks considered health tonics in the 1800s? While, it’s the official drink of Wimbledon, there’s also a huge history of Pimm’s in New Orleans. Here’s my take on it.

Oh, and if don’t drink or would prefer not to, I highly recommend using tart cherry juice to replace the Pimm’s. Does it taste the same. Well, no. But it’s equally refreshing!

PIMM’S CUP

INGREDIENTS
1 cup Pimm’s No. 1 (or Tart Cherry Juice)
2 bottles of Ginger beer
