    I have somehow never had a Pimm's cup. How do you make that? (Come to think of it, what does Pimm's taste like?)
    Pimm's is the liquor, it's kind of herbal and citrusy. Your basic Pimm's cup is Pimm's, ginger ale/ginger beer/"lemonade" in the british sense, i.e. a sprite like soft drink/sprite if you're desperate, i like to add a bit of lemon juice but that's optional. And you need to add cucumber slices, orange slices, lemon, and fresh mint. Sometimes they put a celery stalk in there as well, or strawberries. It's the most delicious, refreshing summer drink ever. Like sangria for people who hate sweet disgusting drinks.

    Hmm. Thanks for instructions! I have never had a Pimm's and I think I'm going to get the ingredients and try it. My Mom has cucumbers from the garden so that'll be extra good and I have some fresh mint in a pot...I always thought when I'd pass Pimm's in the Binny's that it was going to be sickly sweet so I never gave in and bought it (though you'd think my latent Anglophilia would have kicked me in the ass and made me do it). It sounds really good, especially if it's not cloyingly sweet. Plus, I love drinks that turn into snacks. Sure, I love a margarita or whatever from time to time, but I prefer mojitos and stuff like that where I make it myself and put a drop of simple syrup instead of that gross fuck ton of syrup that gross restaurants stick in it in cities that are not Miami or Cuba.

    @DeChayz - yes, but I swear it's good! I can't explain it.

    Pimms is the single most vile beverage I have EVER tasted. May I say EVER! And y'all know me, I am not averse to beverages, but never ever ever again with that evil shit.

    the taste - stuck with me for 20 years since the last time I "tried it again, you'll like it" - even the mention of it brings the taste to mind **shudder**

    Seriously? I'm sorry you had that experience. I don't know how to have a summer nights cocktail without having Pimm's. Last summer I had a Pimm's with elderflower, a special edition. That was also very great.

    ooh i never saw that special edition but i've been making my own version of an elderflower pimm's royale for a while now, with pimm's, st. germain and prosecco.

    it's funny i never thought of pimm's as having a particularly strong taste, definitely not enough to gross someone out for 20 years.

    Is it an herbal flavor? Bc when I visited Czech Rep. they were very into having shots of some ungodly tasting liqueur that just tasted like the green Nyquil to me. Nasty.

    i don't think anyone does shots of pimm's lol
    it's herbal but not overpoweringly so, it's not like fernet-branca or jagermeister or chartreuse levels of herbal-ness. it's more of a light, citrusy herbal flavour and you always drink it mixed, not on its own, so it's even more diluted. but it is gin-based so it does have that same citrusy-herbal note as gin.

    That was probably Becherovka.

    Yes it was! I was thinking, "this tastes like ass" and everyone was all, "it's healthy for you!" *side-eye from me*

    If Pimm's is gin-based I'd probably like it, but I'm already geared toward functional alcoholism so I don't need to find a new favorite drink!

    That sounds awesome!

    I found it; it was actually elderflower with blackberry.
