The original Pimm's No.1 recipe contained a secret blend of herbs and spices that was known only to its creator, James Pimm.
History of the Drink
The Pimm's cocktail is a classic drink that has a long and fascinating history. The story of the Pimm's cocktail dates to the mid-19th Century when a London bartender and oyster bar owner, named James Pimm invented a special liqueur that would soon become the star ingredient of his famous cocktail. This liqueur, known as Pimm's No.1, was made by combining gin, fruit juices, and a secret blend of herbs and spices.
Pimm's No.1 was an instant hit among London's elite who enjoyed it as a refreshing summer drink. The cocktail was typically served in a tall glass filled with ice and garnished with fresh fruit, such as strawberries, orange slices, and cucumber. Over time, the cocktail evolved to include lemonade and became known as the ‘Pimm's Cup’.
