Hosting a party? Then, you need this cranberry Pimm’s Cup on the menu. A classic British cocktail with a fun twist is one one can resist. Make it your signature drink this year.
The holidays are fast approaching and that means it is time to start thinking about all the important details of your holiday feasts and parties. One thing I love doing is featuring a signature drink for my holiday entertaining like a cranberry Pimm’s cup.
What is a Pimm’s Cup?
A Pimm’s Cup (or Pimms Cup) is a classic British cocktail typically made with cucumber and ginger. I’ve added some holiday flavors to make the perfect signature drink for all of my upcoming holiday events. For the cocktail, you will need Ginger Ale to add that perfect ginger flavor.
This Pimm’s Cup recipe can be made with ginger beer in place of the ginger ale if you prefer. We always have ginger ale around the house so it worked perfectly in the recipe for us.
This recipe makes one cocktail but you can easily make a big pitcher of this cranberry Pimm’s cup for parties. If you make this into a larger batch cocktail, I recommend adding the ginger ale or ginger beer just before serving so you get to keep that awesome fizz.
