7 Non-Pimm's Cup Cocktails to Make With Pimm's

Drinks Maggie Hoffman 2 comments

There's pretty much nothing wrong with a perfect Pimm's Cup, and we tend to divide the year into Pimm's Cup Season and sad, cold Non-Pimm's Cup Season. But if you have a whole bottle of Pimm's No. 1 and you've drunk a Cup or four already, you might start to wonder what else you can make with it. More

This super-easy highball is great with Fever Tree tonic, though feel free to substitute your tonic of choice. More

Pimm's Melon Punch

Serious Eats Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

This recipe from John McCarthy of the Greenwich Project (see our First Look here) brings out the spicy side of Pimm's with a cardamom syrup. Instead of the traditional cucumber you often see with Pimm's, this drink is made with fresh honeydew juice. More

The Motown

This cocktail recipe comes from Toasted Oak Grill & Market just outside Detroit, Michigan. The drink is evocative of candied nuts, and it's ideal for serving alongside a gingerbread or spice-cake dessert. More

El Diablo

The Diablo cocktail is made with tequila and creme de cassis. This variation from David Welch at Lincoln Restaurant in Portland, Oregon, calls for Pimm's instead. The result is bright and refreshing. More

Basin Street Blues

Serious Eats Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

This cocktail, adapted from Domenica in New Orleans, is pretty low in alcohol, but not at all low in flavor. It reminds us of caramel and lemon drops, with an essential smoky addition from a few drops of Scotch. More

The Modern's Girovita

This spin on a Pimm's cup uses a good dose of Aperol, and is named for an old Aperol advertisement that claimed that Aperol was good for maintaining your slim figure. More

DIY vs. Buy: Should I Make My Own Pimm's?

Drinks Marcia Simmons 9 comments

I have to admit that the Pimm's Cup first got my attention because it's heavily garnished—sometimes with cucumbers or strawberries, other times with apples or orange slices. I'm a sucker for a cocktail that's also a snack. I take my Martinis with two olives when I am being polite in public and five when I make them at home. So it wasn't until my third Pimm's Cup that I bothered to ask the bartender what non-food items were in this magical drink. I was shocked that the answer was just "Pimm's and sparkling lemonade."

DIY Pimm's

Serious Eats Marcia Simmons 8 comments

If the urge for a Pimm's strikes you, it is ridiculously easy to make a DIY version with ingredients you probably already have at home. If you want to play with the flavor profile, add a little sherry to give it a sweeter touch or a little Campari to accentuate the bitterness. Add a little simple syrup and fresh herbs to play up the sweet, summery flavor or increase the amount of gin to up the alcohol content and juniper intensity. More

Brunch Drinks: Pimm's and Cantaloupe

Drinks Heather Arndt Anderson Post a comment

This brunch cocktail is drier than your standard Pimm's Cup, with just soda, ginger, and lemon slices instead of sweet sparkling lemonade, and wedges of heirloom cantaloupe instead of cucumbers (they're botanical cousins), and I left out all that fruit salad. It's a lovely, iced tea-colored sipper that really refreshes. More

Pimm's and Cantaloupe

Serious Eats Heather Arndt Anderson Post a comment

This is a lovely, iced tea-colored sipper that refreshes perfectly, and wonderfully complements a smoky prosciutto on toast. It's drier than your standard Pimm's Cup, with just soda, ginger, and lemon slices instead of sweet sparkling lemonade, and wedges of heirloom cantaloupe instead of cucumbers (they're botanical cousins).

Not quite a traditional recipe, but with very traditional flavors, Ryan Gannon's version is "firmed up" with Cointreau. More

Drink the Book: Pimm's No. 1 Cup Jelly Shots

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

As you may have noticed, we have a thing for Pimm's. We've long been fans of the Pimm's Cup, a citrusy sweet, lightly bitter refresher traditionally garnished with cucumber and sometimes strawberries and orange, and lately, we just can't resist a Pimm's concoction, whether it's mixed with whiskey or muddled with mint and Hendrick's gin. But a jello shot Pimm's Cup had never occurred to us until we saw these Pimm's No. 1 Cup Jelly Shots from Jelly Shot Test Kitchen. More

It's Pimm's O'Clock: The Rookie Highball

Drinks J. Kenji López-Alt 4 comments

In this variant of the classic Scotch and Soda highball, Chris swaps out the Scotch for Irish Whiskey, and subs in a good proportion of Gin-based Pimm's. A dash of lemon juice and Angostura bitters add acidity and complexity to the mix, and ginger ale finishes it off. More

It's Pimm's O'Clock: The Pimmlet

Drinks J. Kenji López-Alt 10 comments

The problem with Pimm's is that it's indelibly connected with the Pimm's cup, and as much as I like that drink, there's a tiny voice in my head that kinda resents the fact that I enjoy sipping a cocktail flavored with strawberries and consumed at fancy-pants boat races. So I've recently started looking for slightly manlier ways to incorporate Pimm's into my life. More

The Pimmlet

Serious Eats J. Kenji López-Alt 1 comment

I'm a sucker for good, relatively dry gimlets made with fresh lime juice, gin, and a bit of sugar (I don't dig the Rose's!), so it seemed only natural to attempt a Pimm's-seasoned variation of one. More

It's Pimm's O'Clock!

Drinks J. Kenji López-Alt 20 comments

For myself and many others, it's a drink that instantly evokes England. I see Pimm's and I think damp rolling green hills, punting down winding rivers, summer suits and boat races, manicured lawns and garden parties. More
