  • 3/4 cup Pimm's Original No. 1 Cup can be found in most liquor stores and some markets
  • 2 cups Sparkling lemon soda or Sanpellagrino limonata soda. (7-UP or Sprite can be used, but will have a sweeter taste).
  • 4 slices English cucumber
  • 8 strawberries quarter four, and reserve 4 for garnish
  • 4 slices orange
  • 4 slices lemon
  • 4 slices lime
  • Sprigs of mint or borage


  • Pimm's is usually made by the pitcher full, since it goes so fast. But you can easily make it by the glass.
  • In a pitcher, mix 3/4 Pimm's Cup, citrus slices, strawberry quarters and cucumber slices. Let sit for about 10 minutes. (Or several hours)
  • Just before serving add 2 cups of lemon soda. Pour into 4 tall glasses filled with ice. Garnish with a strawberry and additional fresh mint if desired.


  • This Pimm's Cup recipe serves 4, but can easily be doubled or tripled!
  • The fruit can be added to a pitcher with the Pimm's several hours before so that the fruit can meld with the alcohol. Add the lemon soda just before serving.
