Happy Friday Hipsters!

It’s time to toast to the weekend with this week’s HIPSTER Drink of the Week, Pimm’s Cup.

Pimm's Cup at Rose & Crown Pub in Epcot

Pimm’s Cup at Rose & Crown Pub in Epcot

Pimm’s Cup at Epcot’s Rose & Crown Pub is an outstanding way to begin the weekend. This simple, yet delicious cocktail mixes Pimm’s No. 1 and Sprite ®. That’s it! The Rose& Crown Pub definitely delivers something so simple that tastes extremely scrumptious. You can barely taste the alcohol, a plus for some drinkers, which leads to a nice buzz complete with a smooth, sweet finish.
