Created in the mid-18th centry by English oyster bar owner, James Pimm, Pimm’s No. 1 Cup is made from dry gin, liqueur, fruit juices and spices. The dark, golden brown colour, medium body liquor has hints of quinine, citrus fruit and spices. Originally the drink was served in tankards. Today, the No. 1 Cup is traditionally served with lemon soda or ginger ale, and a cucumber slice. It is a favourite at Wimbledon and outdoor garden parties.
