Pimm’s is one of the most popular British alcoholic drinks during the summer months and if you visit the UK, you’re bound to find it in pubs, bars, restaurants and even at parties. So what exactly is it?
Pimm’s was first made by James Pimm, an oyster bar owner in London, in the 1840s. He created an infused gin with orange and spices to be served with oysters. Pimm’s then became a popular drink at social events throughout the UK, most notably Wimbledon. Today, Pimm’s is known as the classic British summer drink and it can easily be found in supermarkets, corner shops and at duty free in an airport.
Pimm’s is very easy to make and you simply add all the ingredients to the glass or jug and drink. Different places use a variety of different ingredients, but our favourites are: Pimm’s, lemonade, orange, apple, strawberry, cucumber and mint.
