Pimm’s No 1
is a dark-tea colour with a reddish tint, and tastes subtly of spice and citrus fruit. It can be served both on ice or in cocktails and is often enjoyed with various chopped fresh ingredients, particularly apples, cucumber, oranges, lemons and strawberry. Pimm’s No 1 can also be mixed with Champagne (or a sparkling white wine) or with lemonade or ginger ale. Pimm’s No 1 was created in 1859 by the English oyster bar owner James Pimm. The recipe is still a secret, and only six persons know exactly how it is made.
