How To Cocktail: Pimm’s Cup

The Pimm’s Cup may be the quintessential British summertime drink. Top San Francisco bartender H. Joseph Ehrmann shows you how to make a Pimm’s Cup.


  • 2 oz Pimm’s No. 1
  • 3 oz Sprite, 7UP or ginger ale
  • 1 or 2 Cucumber slices
  • 1 Strawberry, hulled and cut into quarters
  • Half an orange slice
  • 1 Lemon slice
  • 6 Mint leaves
  • Glass: Highball

Add all the ingredients to a highball glass filled with ice and stir to combine. (To mix things up a bit, you can replace the Sprite, 7Up or ginger ale with Champagne.)
