Pimm's Cup Recipe

Come Party With Me: Labor Day — Drinks


Although Labor Day is an American holiday, I'm suggesting that you serve a classic British cocktail, Pimm's Cup, at your barbecue. Why? Because it's a refreshing and wonderful drink! It's fruity, gingery, and not too strong. This punch-like libation requires a special spirit, Pimm's No. 1, that's readily available at most liquor stores. The recipe serves four, but I would plan on doubling it. A Pimm's Cup is so delicious that you and your guests will be craving seconds. Look at a recipe after the break.

About 3 cups ice
