The classic flavours of my Pimm’s ginger ale cocktail come from just two main ingredients. Classic Pimm’s ( you can always use alternative brands if you prefer, a god fruity gin liqueur will work) mixed with fresh and firey ginger ale. Pop in some mint, strawberries and a slice of cucumber and you have yourself the perfect Pimm’s ginger cocktal.
I use the classic Pimm’s cup for this recipe but you can swap it out for a supermarket own brand version or even try it with Sipsmith London Cup wich is very similar.
The ginger ale in the recipe adds the fiery heat of ginger. The ginger works so well with the Pimm’s. The heat of the ginger compliments the fruity Pimm’s mix.

Pimm’s Ginger Ale Cocktail Top Tips
- Add some classic Pimm’s fruit to your Pimm’s ginger ale cocktail, personally, I love adding a slice of orange, cucumber some mint leaves and a couple of frozen strawberries.
- The frozen strawberries act as ice cubes and defrost so quickly you can still enjoy a Pimm’s soaked strawberry when you finish your drink.
Substitutions and variations
For anyone who prefers less of a kick, you could swap out the ginger ale for lemonade or a classic Indian tonic. These still make for a refreshing Pimm’s cocktail but are just a little softer and sweeter.
You can also make this Pimm’s ginger ale cocktail alcohol-free by swapping the Pimm’s for a 0% fruity gin. Unfortunately, Pimm’s doesn’t make their own alcohol free drink just yet but we can hold out hope for next summer!
Making ahead of time options
This Easy Pimm’s cocktail is best enjoyed freshly poured. It takes just a few minutes to make and tatses amazing!
If you want to prepare this Pimm’s ginger cocktail for a party, simply scale up the recipe by the number of servings you need and store it in the fridge with some extra fruit slices before serving.
Add the ice when you serve so it doesn’t melt in between making and serving!
Can you mix ginger ale with Pimms?
You can mix ginger ale with Pimms! I did so in this recipe, simply measure your Pimm’s, add some fruit and mix with your ginger ale! Viola, ginger ale mixed with Pimm’s!
What alcohol can you have with ginger ale?
You can have Pimm’s drink with ginger ale, but you can enjoy lots of alcohol with ginger ale. I think a fresh gin pair well with ginger ale or a clean cool vodka but the options are endless!
Is ginger beer the same as ginger ale?
Ginger beer is not the same as ginger ale. Ginger ale is non-alcoholic and often has a sweeter taste than ginger beer, which was originally brewed as an alcoholic beer made from fermented sugar, ginger and water. Although now most ginger beers are non-alcoholic.
