Summer is nearly here and I can't wait to take my party game outdoors to enjoy the garden, the warm sunshine and all the fabulousness that come with the season!! Speaking of which, today I'm sharing a delicious cocktail that first made an appearance in our Tea Party a couple of weeks ago!

Pimm's No. 1 Cup is a delicious, refreshing, big-batch cocktail that is perfectly suited to any warm temps soiree, and would also be ideal for a Father's Day celebration coming up in a few weeks!

Pimm's No. 1 Cup Cocktail Recipe

Pimm's is a typical summer beverage in the UK and associated with Wimbledon tennis tournament, the Chelsea Flower Show, the Henley Royal Regatta and polo matches across the land. So it's more than appropriate for any summer party you may have on the agenda!

Pimm's has a dark tea color with a reddish tint, and tastes subtly of spice and citrus fruit. As a summer long drink, it is also commonly served with "English-style" (clear and carbonated) lemonade, as well as various chopped garnishes like citrus fruits, strawberries, cucumber, and mint leaves.  But if you can't find carbonated lemonade then Ginger ale is a common substitute.

We served it at our high tea party to celebrate the Royal Wedding on the 19th, and it really is such a great cocktail to serve to a crowd, as you can make a batch in a pitcher or jug and let guests help themselves!

Plus, it contains delicious produce (strawberries, mint, citrus fruits...) as part of the recipe, which help to infuse a summery flavor to this cocktail and makes it look so pretty too!

The No. 1 Cup name comes from the original cocktail recipe name. According to Wikipedia:

Seven Pimm's products have been produced altogether, differing only in their base alcohol: Only Nos. 1, 6, and a 'Winter Cup' based on No. 3 remain.

Pimm's No. 1 Cup is the most popular version. Based on gin, its base as bottled is 25 percent alcohol by volume.
Pimm's No. 2 Cup was based on Scotch whisky. Currently phased out.
Pimm's No. 3 Cup is based on brandy. Phased out, but a version infused with spices and orange peel marketed as Pimm's Winter Cup is now seasonally available.
Pimm's No. 4 Cup was based on rum. Currently phased out.
Pimm's No. 5 Cup was based on rye whisky. Currently phased out.
Pimm's No. 6 Cup is based on vodka. It is still produced, but in small quantities.[2]
Pimm's No. 1 has also been sold with additional strawberry or blackberry and elderflower flavoring.
