Review:

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. than 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 back a tad to (22.5ml / .75oz) and add a splash more of the last 2 ingredients.

Boozy

Dry/sour

History:

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