The Pimm’s cup for Wimbledon is a riff on a classic summer sipper made with Pimm’s, fresh fruit, and lemon-lime soda. It was made popular at tennis and polo matches although it’s perfectly suited to any cocktail hour. This version adds fresh strawberries in honor of Wimbledon.

What You Need To Know About Multiplying This Recipe To Make Multiple Servings
Never has there been a more worthy use for all that arithmetic you learned in gradeschool as 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 glass. Figure 1/4 cup Pimm’s per person—actually, we should say, per serving. Because if you’ve yet to experience Pimm’s, it’s going to be hard to stop at just one glass.

I love Pimm’s. Now that summer is on the way, this will be one of my to-go drinks. Please, please, please use lemon or lemon-lime soda, though, and not seltzer—the latter just isn’t quite right.
The garnishes make it fancy. This drink is very easy to scale up—don’t stop at one glass, make pitchers of it and share!
What a lovely and refreshing summer drink. It’s very versatile, as you could use almost any fruit you have.
I was most surprised by the taste of the cucumber—it really made the drink. We made a pitcher and let it sit for a little while, then prepared each glass with a fresh serving of fruit. My mother-in-law saved all of the Pimm’s-soaked fruit and enjoyed that later in the evening!
