Today’s cocktail, prepared in partnership with Tropicana Premium Lemonade, is so darn fresh. Just a little something I shook up to celebrate the completion of a small home project.
With summer’s bounty coming to a close in our garden, we recently expanded and redid our backyard beds. Jorge and I pulled up all of the leggy and overgrown garden remnants and processed them into mulch. We then installed three new rectangular beds and filled them with a mix of fresh dirt and recycled mulch. They’re all prepped and ready to go for fall plantings! To celebrate this small victory, Jorge and I kicked back with a couple of these Raspberry Pimm’s Cups.
The Pimm’s Cup is a classic British cocktail made with Pimm’s No. 1 liqueur and lemonade, garnished with fruit and herbs. It’s also one of my favorite cocktails. So crisp and refreshing. This recipe starts with raspberries and cucumber slices muddled with just a bit of sugar. Next, add Tropicana Premium Raspberry Lemonade, Pimm’s No. 1 and lemon juice to the shaker along with ice. Cap and shake until well-chilled. The cocktail is finished with ginger beer and a garnish of fresh herbs. I snipped bundles of thyme, rosemary and mint from our garden before we redid everything, so that’s what I’m using here! Continue reading for the recipe.
