Pimm’s Cup for Wimbledon

I adore drinking Pimm’s in the summer. It’s fabulous to drink while watching Wimbledon, on a picnic, or at a summer party.–Clodagh McKenna

LC Pimm's for Every One and Every Occasion Note

Never has there been a more worthy use for arithmetic than crunching the numbers in the ingredient list below to make more than a single serving of this lovely summer sipper. Because trust us, you’ll want to make a sufficient amount to fill a pitcher, not just a measly glassful. Figure 1/4 cup Pimm’s per person—correction, per serving. For those who have yet to experience Pimm’s, it’s a memorable, if inimitable, gin-based liqueur infused with citrus and spice. This recipe is simply the classic Pimm’s Cup made suitable for Wimbledon with—can you guess it?—fresh strawberries.
