“I like to use Pimm’s as a great herbal note in cocktails,” says Matthew Betts, the beverage manager for Fielding’s, Sky Shed and Tune Up, all in Bozeman, Montana. 

 Betts says the liqueur’s best attribute is its versatility, though he believes it’s better when it shares a split base with another spirit, as it does here, splitting the spotlight with Beefeater gin. The split base is enhanced by an uncommon mix of spicy and sweet. “The spicy bite from ginger married with the herbal notes found in Pimm’s creates such an interesting yet balanced flavor,” says Betts.
