Ginger Lime Pimm’s Cocktail Recipe

This Ginger Lime Pimm’s Cocktail with fresh ginger is a new twist on the classic Pimm’s Cup.

Ginger Lime Pimms Cocktail - wearychef.com Last week, The Pants asked me to pick up a bottle of Pimm’s if I came across it. I didn’t know what Pimm’s was, but I love running errands and acquiring new ingredients. I proudly took my young boys to the mega liquor store, and we perused until we found it. As soon as a new liqueur entered the house, I, of course, knew that I would need to come up with a cocktail to feature it. After tasting Pimm’s alone and reading lots of recipe ideas, I came up with this Pimm’s cocktail. It is cool and refreshing, and the cucumber adds a nice aroma with the ginger and lime flavors. One thing I like about Pimm’s is that it is not as strong as other spirits, so you could drink a few of these over the course of an evening without overindulging. Ginger Lime Pimms Cocktail - wearychef.com Disappointingly, I was not able to come up with a clever name for this tasty concoction. What would you call it (besides refreshing and yummy)?

  1. Hi – I’m english. What is seltzer water? is it flavoured/sweet, or just plain sparkling water?
    Will be trying this one as soon as your reply!
    Thanks

      Hi, Kitty Jo. Seltzer water is the same as club soda or carbonated water. It is not flavored. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. You know where I stand on this one, Andi. Looooove it :-) Really very refreshing. I can see it starring at a Girls’ Night In cocktail party. Oh. Yum.

    • The Weary Chef says:

      So glad you liked it so much! I thought the Pimm’s tasted a little like caramel, so I’m thinking of trying a sweet dessert drink with it too.
