The traditional drink of Wimbledon and at cricket matches. James Pimm, an English oyster bar owner devised the secret recipe to accompany shellfish. The liquor is golden brown in colour and medium body. There are Pimm’s 1,2,3,4, 5 and 6—that is gin, whiskey, brandy, rum, rye and vodka–the most common is the gin based, No 1 Cup.
Add slices of cucumber, apple, orange and fresh mint. This cocktail is easy to pour for a group. Just make it in a glass pitcher and refrigerate until ready to serve. Pour it over ice and garnish.
