Guest post: Pimm’s lemonade cup

I fell in love with Tan’s blog as soon as I found it, some months ago. I think you will, too: there are DIYs and recipes, as well as fashion tips and wedding stuff. Intrigued? Check out Squirrelly Minds for even more fun stuff from this teacher-by-day and wife/blogger/cat owner-by-night. And to start you off, here’s a cocktail recipe sample:

With the closing of Wimbledon, it’s only fitting that this cocktail recipe include the British (and my personal) favourite, Pimm’s.

This is a spin on the classic Pimm’s Cup, a blend of pimm’s, ginger ale (or 7-up, but ginger ale is better) and a big wedge of cucumber. It’s my absolutely favorite drink on a hot summer’s day. This version adds a little more oomf with some lemon zing. Plus, the ombre effect makes it almost too pretty to drink. Almost.

Pimm's lemonade cup
  1. 2 ounces Pimm’s No. 1
  2. 3 ounces ginger ale
  3. 3 ounces lemonade
  4. Ice
  5. Mint and raspberry to garnish (or a wedge of cucumber)
  1. In a tall glass mix your ginger ale and lemonade. 3 ounces each is enough for a medium-sized glass but if yours is taller or smaller than adjust accordingly. Top with ice
  2. Carefully pour the pimm’s over the ice so it floats on top
  3. Garnish with a sprig of mint and raspberries
