Every Day in May: Pimm’s [22 May]


Years ago, I heard about this British alcoholic beverage called Pimm’s. I looked for it in the liquor stores in VA, but never did find it. A few weeks ago, I noticed it at the liquor store here in WA. I couldn’t remember what it was supposed to be like, so I just made a mental note that they had it there.

Today I came across this blog post and knew I had to go out and pick some up!

pimm's & orange

Pimm’s #1 is gin-based. It is spiced, and tastes a bit citrus, a bit spicy.

Ice in a glass, a shot or two of Pimm’s, some orange slices, and lemon-lime soda (I used diet 7-Up). Very tasty, very refreshing.

I hear that it is even better with cucumber and lemon slices. I also hear that it is great if you add gin to it. I may have to try both tomorrow. Enjoy!
