What is Pimm’s Cup Made From?

Pimm’s No. 1 is a gin-based liquer made in England from dry gin, liqueur, fruit juices and spices (complete recipe still unknown). It was created in the mid-late 1800s by the English oyster bar owner James Pimm.

The Pimm’s Cup was originally a tonic created to help with digestion due to its secret ingredients of different liqueurs and herbs. It was later re-branded into the beverage that it is known for today.

How Much Alcohol is in a Pimm’s Cup?

Pimm’s No. 1 has an alcohol concentration of 25% and tends to have a dark, golden-brown color, a medium body and a taste of citrus fruits and spices.

This simple, yet delicious cocktail mixes Pimm’s No. 1 and Sprite ®.

That’s it!

What Does Pimm’s Cup Taste Like?

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.

To me the Pimm’s Cup cocktail tastes like a milder version of ginger beer with hints of citruses and spices.

You can serve it on the rocks or you can use it in mixed drinks. This is the perfect summer drink that can be served in a variety of ways and mixed with:
  • Lemonade
  • Ginger Ale
  • Champagne
  • Lemon-lime Soda
