    Heather Sullivan's Note:

    This is Common Cup (a name I've made up) because apparently the true traditional pimm's should be topped with champagne. In reality, this is what you're much more likely to find in pubs in the summer.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 50 ml Pimm's liqueur (This is the Gin-based fusion of this "fruit cup" liquor. There is also Plymouth Fruit Cup.)
    • 200 ml fizzy lemonade (British lemonade is clear lemon soda. Outside of the UK I've found a french soda called clear limona)



    1. 1
      Fill a Collins or Highball glass with ice.
    2. 2
      Add your chosen garnishes. You can use all or a combination of the ones listed. My personal combination is lemon, orange, mint and cucumber (Or lemon, orange, mint and borage).
    3. 3
      Pour the Pimm's into the glass.
    4. 4
      Gently pour the fizzy lemonade into the glass by pouring down the inside of the glass while tilting the glass.
    5. 5
      Stir gently with a swizzle stick if desired and Enjoy!

      Well, I can't argue with this! We've been drinking this since we moved to the UK in 2000 and it is a summer ritual now we wouldn't do without. A lovely drink that hits the spot without being too strong, although careful -- they are easy to drink and a few can make your cheeks very rosy!

      A summer favourite of mine. Didn't use the borage but used cucumber instead. Can never stop at one so always have to make a large jug full instead!
