Comment:

This long refreshing fruity cocktail mimics the characteristics of a Pimm’s Cup but with the punch and fullness of flavour reminiscent of distant decades when Pimm’s No.1 carried a full 9% more alc./vol. that it does today. Predictably, my version is a good deal boozier. If you find too boozy for a summer's afternoon then knock each of the first 3 ingredients a tad (1/4oz / 7.5ml) and add a splash more (1/2oz / 15ml) to the last 2 ingredients.

About:

Created in 2011 by yours truly (Simon Difford) in an attempt to improve on a Pimm's Cup.
