This easy Pimms spritz wouldn’t be the same without the summertime classic flavours and toppings of Pimms. It’s fruity and refreshing and works perfectly with sliced fruit in an easy Pimms cocktail. You can also swap out the Pimms for another brand ( for example, Sainsbury’s Pitcher or Asda’s Summer Cup for a couple of lower-budget alternatives).
The perfect Pimms paring, prosecco is light and bubbly! You can even make this into a luxury Pimms spritz by adding champagne instead of prosecco to your Pimms. This drink would be perfect for the cocktail or a summer wedding or to pair with tiny sandwiches at an afternoon tea.

Substitutions and variations
Other brands of Pimms drink could be used instead of Pimms.
Asda has its own brand called Summer Cup, and Sainsbury’s offers Pitchers. These are both great, own-brand gin liqueurs that go perfectly in this easy Pimms cocktail.
You can also swap out the Prosecco for all lemonade if you would prefer a lower alcohol Pimms cocktail. Just remember that Pimms contains alcohol whether or not you top it with Prosecco or lemonade.
Making ahead-of-time options
Pimm’s is best enjoyed when served and made fresh. This cocktail only takes a couple of minutes to whip up so I would suggest making this just before you plan to serve.
The good part about pimm’s is you can prepare the fruit and topping in advance and keep in the fridge until ready.
You can also make this easy Pimms spritz into a large pourable drink by scaling up the Pimms, prosecco and lemonade.
If you want to help keep the drink cold you can freeze the strawberries in advance and use them instead of ice cubes. They don’t take long to defrost so you will still be able to eat them once you’ve enjoyed your Pimm’s Spritz.
