What is Pimm’s?

Pimm’s is a delicious drink that is perfect for summer parties, picnics and barbecues. It’s a gin-based liqueur that has a fruity and spiced flavour. James Pimm first made it in 1823 in his oyster bar in London. He served it as a digestive tonic in a small cup, which is why it’s called Pimm’s No. 1 Cup.!

What can you mix Pimms with?

Pimm’s is usually mixed with lemonade or ginger ale and lots of fresh fruit, cucumber and mint to make a refreshing cocktail called a Pimm’s cup. You can also add some champagne or sparkling wine to make it extra special.

How long does a bottle of Pimms last once opened?

The good news is that Pimm’s can last for a long time once opened, as long as you store it in a cool and dark place. Some sources say it can last for about 18 to 24 months before the flavour starts fading. Others say that it can last even longer, as it has a high alcohol content of 25% and won’t go bad.

The best way to tell if your Pimm’s is still good is to taste it. If it still has that fruity and spicy kick, then you’re good to go. If it tastes dull or off, then you might want to get a new bottle.

How do you store a bottle of Pimms?

Pimm’s is best stored in a dark, cool cupboard. This way it will last a long time and stay as fresh as possible. You want to leave it in the glass bottle you bought the Pimms in, it was designed to keep it fresh for longer.

Can you add Pimm’s to a cake?

Yes! Adding a Pimm’s drizzle to a cake is one of the best things you can do with Pimm’s besides drink it! You simply need to soak your cooked and cooled sponges in Pimm’s and then top it with fresh fruit! I love adding a few mint leaves to the cake decoration as well, this really helps add a refreshing hint.

Can you mix Pimm’s into a cheesecake?

Pimm’s mixed into a cheesecake is a great summer dessert, it’s light, fruit and refreshing! The Pimm’s can be mixed straight into the cheesecake mixture and then you can top your cheesecake with pimms soaked fruits as well for that extra kick!

What alcohol Flavour is Pimms?

Pimm’s has a slightly spiced gin flavour, but it’s mostly rich and fruity. It makes for the perfect summer drink, especially when mixed with lemonade over ice. The flavour of Pimm’s makes it the perfect addition to summer cakes too!
