Pimm's Cup Cocktail Recipe

A bottle of Pimm's No. 1, lemon-lime soda, and tons of garnish are all you need for this party-friendly classic.

Ideal for spring and summer parties, the Pimm's Cup instantly evokes England. The standard version is made by mixing Pimm's with "white lemonade" (a.k.a. Sprite or 7-Up) along with chopped fruit and ice. Fruit choices can vary, but for me, the three absolute essentials are the cucumber, strawberry, and orange.

Note: Feel free to change fruit and vegetable garnishes as desired. If you like your drink a little stronger, add an extra splash of gin.
