There are many different choices of Pimms cocktail recipes just like there are different versions of the Pimms liqueur. Out of the entire liqueur versions available the original one, the No.1 cup is still the king. Using this liqueur, you can make yourself a traditional drink just by adding slices of lemon, orange, cucumber and apple. Pour in lemonade and the Pimms then garnish the drink with a sprig of mint. If you want to have a good experience, you can go with the Turbo Pimms mixture using the same ingredients as previously noted but this time with a larger dash of Pimms and a larger portion of gin.

Mix them together in a shaker and strain. Pour the mixture into a glass that’s filled with ice. To add more to its charm, you can use the slim Jim glass. Add soda water into the mix and top it with a mint sprig garnish.
