One of the most well-known summer drinks in England is just about any cocktail made with Pimm's No. 1 — an English spirit made with gin, fruit extract and spices. You'll find many recipes for a Pimm's Cup, but it's often made with ginger ale (or you can replace the ginger ale with lemonade), cucumbers, citrus fruit, and Pimm's No. 1. This drink is worth crossing the pond for, but you won't have to with this recipe. You can find Pimm's No. 1 in liquor stores and some specialty groceries.
Use a tall glass (a 12-ounce glass works well) to serve up your summer Pimm's Cup cocktail. Make and serve a batch to drink as you watch the competitions unfold in London this summer — it's the next best thing to being there!
