As Wimbledon is not far away we are celebrating this with the cocktail of the month Pimm’s Cup cocktail at Saba during the Wimbledon tournament.
Place fresh summer fruits of your choice in a long glass, pour 50mls of Pimm’s over ice and top with lemonade. Garnish with mint, fresh cucumber and a lemon twist.
With its bitter tang, gin was knocked back, not savoured but that was all to change thanks to shellfish-monger James Pimm and his famous central London ‘Oyster Bar’ in 1823. Patrons soon swallowed oysters with the PIMM’S ‘house cup’ and sampled gin flavoured with liqueurs and fruit extract. This more palatable long drink ‘gin-sling’, kick-started the great British Pimm’s story.
