Pimm’s winter cup is a warm, winterized version of the summer Pimm’s No. 1 cup with apple juice infused with caramel, orange and cinnamon.
Pimm’s is one of my favorite because of its flavors, it can be mixed in so many ways. It is a British, gin-based liqueur with flavors of herbs and citrus. You may have heard of a Pimm’s cup, which is a popular drink to enjoy in the summer in England.
This past summer I made a Pimm’s strawberry mint cocktail and wanted to make a warm and comforting version for the winter. Pimm’s make their own winter blend, but it is not available in the U.S, so I decided to make my own.
This drink starts with good apple juice warmed and infused with orange, cinnamon, caramel. This aromatic infusion is then mixed with Pimm’s and served warm for a hot toddy that will warm you inside, when it’s cold outside.
