A Pimm’s Cup is a refreshing and light cocktail that originated in England. It’s a perfect drink for warm summer days and outdoor gatherings. The signature reddish-brown hue of the cocktail comes from its main ingredient, Pimm’s No. 1, a gin-based liqueur that’s been infused with herbs and spices. 

A Pimm’s Cup is typically served over ice and then mixed with a combination of fruit, vegetables, and carbonated beverages, giving it a slightly effervescent quality. The garnish typically includes slices of lemon, cucumber, and mint, which are all complementary to the cocktail’s flavors and aromas.
