On our honeymoon we stayed with some friends in London and they made us this drink - now we can't stop making it! It is especially delicious on a hot, summer afternoon. The cucumber and mint are odd, but don't leave them out - they make this drink!

Brings back happy memories of Henley Regatta. This is the typical 'tipple' of this event. You have to have the mint and cucumber. Very refreshing but be careful you often don't realize how much alchohol is in this! Read More

This was a great tipple at a party I had recently. I didn't add strawberries or pineapple and I added way more cucumber. Brilliant! Read More

I can't get Pimm's so I used Bombay gin and it was delicious and refreshing. I omitted the pineapple and poured the gin into glasses then poured the steeped lemonade over that. Lovely! Read More

This was delicious! My daughter-in-law's mother was visiting from Manchester England and I served this to her last night at our BBQ. She said she's going to make me an honorary Brit!!! I did not use the apple or the lime and I increased the mint to 5 leaves. Read More

Refreshing and tasty. Not sure why but after a few hours it seemed to get a slight bitter aftertaste. That tells me to make it in smaller batches which works for me. Was really tasty fresh. Read More

Pimm's is one of the better imports from the "Old Country". Absolutly my favorit spring/summer/autumn drink. For all non Brits out there "Lemonade" is not the traditional lemonade that is commonly drunk in the USA. Lemonade is a soda that is like Seven Up or Sprite both of which are good substitutes for "Lemonade". Half the fun of Pimm's is eating the fruit after it has soaked for a while. Read More
