#SundaySupper: Simple Mixed Drinks for a Refreshing Summer

Before my husband discovered the Moscow Mule last year, a Pimm’s Cup was his drink of choice for about two years.

While he’s currently in a “dry season” due to training for World’s Toughest Mudder, I think he’d like to celebrate his race, not with the customary beer, but with something a bit more refreshing.  (Not immediately, mind you, it’ll be a miracle just making it back home after the 24 hours of conquering the WTM course!)  Given that our house is currently void of vodka, I think I’ll remind him of this beauty.

The Pimm’s Cup is perfect for sharing with today’s #SundaySupper Simple Mixed Drinks for a Refreshing Summer! Thank you to Christie of A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventure for hosting this event.

The Pimm’s Cup has been a popular English summer drink for the past 46 years. It is the official drink of the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament. Fun fact, the finals are next weekend, so you might as well gather all the ingredients and pretend you’re in London watching the match, but from the comfort of your much-less-expensive couch.

This recipe is intended for individuals ages 21 & up. Please drink responsibly.

  1. I have a bottle of Pimm’s in my liquor cabinet—I made Pimm’s cups for my book club eons ago. The awful photos may still be on my blog! I need to make another batch this summer—perfect sipper on a hot evening!

  2. My hubby was just suggesting this drink for a wedding shower that I was planning. It was a Mary Poppins theme and this is a very popular English drink – a perfect tie in. I went with something else, but now looking at your pictures, I wish I had chosen Pimm’s Cup! This is a new drink for me to try!
