Pimm's Cup with Ginger Ale

64

This enduring classic conjures images of afternoon tennis matches and drinks on the lawn. Often made with lemonade alone, our cocktail includes ginger ale to mellow the flavor of Pimm's -- a fruity, spicy gin-based liqueur -- and make it effervescent.

    I served this to my friends at a summer BBQ. Some had tried Pimm's before and some hadn't, but everyone loved it! It was the favorite of the night. I didn't try any variations, but I'm sure they would be good too.

    I love Pimm's!! I have never put gin & lemonade in it till today & it was very nice. It definitely dilutes the Pimm's flavor so I will continue to serve it just with ginger ale and a squeeze of lemon most of the time. If you haven't tried Pimm's, this is certainly a good recipe to start with.
