Pimm’s Cup

I am hosting an upcoming book club meeting with an Indian theme and have been searching for a fun cocktail. I was striking out till someone mentioned how a British drink like Pimm’s cup would be apropos.

Pimm’s is a gin-based drink with some herb undertones, typically served during cricket matches. So when friends came over to bake, I had some taste testers. We found them quite refreshing. So perfect for a hot summer evening or the next Cricket World Cup. I bet you’ll find a good excuse to whip these up!

  1. Love how Lambeau makes “cameo” appearances!

  2. Thanks, girls! I think I’d rather drink a margarita or glass of Sauvignon Blanc, but it will be perfect for book club!

    Leef, yes, Lambeau has become the “Waldo” of my blog. Did you notice she’s underneath our glasses as we’re toasting? She didn’t want to miss a thing…LOL.

  3. A great classic cocktail. Would you be happy to link it to Food on Friday : Mocktails and Cocktails
