How to Make The Perfect Pimms

The heatwave across the UK has left thousands of Brits absolutely parched. There is nothing more refreshing than a glass of Pimms in the afternoon. Here’s how to make the most of it.

Essentially, you are looking for a ratio of one part Pimms to three parts lemonade. From there you are looking to add a mixture of fruit of your choice with some fresh mint leaves and chopped cucumber. Make sure to chop your fruit as this will help to release the flavours into the Pimms and Lemonade.

Whether you are filling a glass or a pitcher, fill it with ice first and foremost. Then add your fruit, cucumber and mint, followed by your measurement of Pimms and top with lemonade and that will give you a standard Pimms! Simple really, here is one of Barnsgates examples:

  • Measurement of Pimms
  • Lemonade
  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Cucumber
  • Fresh Mint

There is plenty more to experiment with Pimms however. A famous example is to replace the lemonade with champagne. Known as a “Pimms Royale”. You could also replace lemonade with any other fizzy drink you might like to try.

You could try substituting mint for other herbs such as basil or thyme

Or you could even try freezing it to make Pimms Ice Lollies!

Half of the enjoyment of Pimms is being creative and coming up with the perfect concoction to “Wow” your guests. We would love for you to share your Pimms experiments. What fruits did you use? Was there an interesting twist to your recipe? Share your thoughts with us below!
