This Pimm’s Strawberry Mint Cocktail is inspired by England’s most popular summer drink, Pimm’s No.1 fruit cup. A cooling and refreshing summer cooler.

A Pimm’s fruit cup is probably Englands most popular summer drink. Whether you’re watching the tennis at Wimbledon, or just enjoying the summer with friends, Pimm’s is the basis of so many delicious cocktails.

If you’re lucky enough to find yourself at Wimbledon, you’ll undoubtedly find yourself sipping on Pimm’s No. 1 cup as it is the official drink of the event, while snacking on strawberries and cream. I have that recipe, along with the history of Wimbledon that you can find by clicking here> Strawberries and Cream for Wimbledon.

Just because I’m in a different country, this doesn’t stop me from enjoying one.. or two of this summer cooler. This spirit drink is available in the U.S., but I always pick up a bottle in duty free when I visit my family back in England.

What is Pimm’s?

Pimm’s is a gin-based, liquer-type alcoholic drink that is best enjoyed mixed. It is  dark reddish-brown in color and floral in flavor with hints of spice, so any fruit-based juices will pair very nicely.

Other Pimm’s varietals include No.3 winter cup, No.6 vodka cup, blackberry & elderflower and strawberry with a hint of mint.

I designed this cocktail based on the popular Pimm’s No. 1 cup which is 3 parts lemonade to 1 part Pimm’s. This recipe starts with blending fresh strawberries with fresh mint leaves and lemonade.

In place of ice cubes, I freeze fresh strawberries which serves 2 purposes, they keep the drink cool without watering it down and it makes for an elegant presentation. The blended strawberry and mint, Pimm’s and lemonade is all shaken with ice and served in a tall glass.

If you don’t find yourself at an elegant British event, not to worry. This drink is perfect for those balmy nights on the porch, or cooling off by the pool.
