A cocktail made with Pimm’s Cup No. 1 Liqueur provides the foundation for the delightfully refreshing drink of choice at the Wimbledon Tennis Championship, the Chelsea Flower Show, the Henley Royal Regatta and other events traditionally attended and supported by the Royal family. The classic Pimm’s Cup cocktail recipe calls for filling a large pitcher with ice, 1 cup of Pimm’s Cup No. 1 and 2 cups of lightly sweetened lemonade. Mix in thin cucumber slices and orange slices. Serve the drinks in tall glasses with ice and garnish with a slice of cucumber and a sprig of mint.

That’s the time to opt for the satisfying austerity of a perfectly made martini. Go with a London dry, of course, and don’t be shy with the vermouth.
