“Recently tasted this cocktail for the first time at a new Scottish restaurant in Rockville, Maryland. It was so delicious and refreshing! Not too sweet but lots of flavor. Just found the recipe from Chow and wanted to save it here at Zaar and share it. The Pimm’s Cup is to Wimbledon what the Mint Julep is to the Kentucky Derby. This cool, easy-drinking cocktail can sneak up on you, so sip slowly while you watch the matches. If you prefer more Pimm’s liqueur and no gin in your drink, swap the gin for another ounce of Pimm’s. (Any liquor can be substituted for the gin; rum, bourbon, whisky, etc.)”
