And the clientele loved the new Pimm's drink, served in large vessels known as 'cups' at his establishment on Lombard Street. In fact, it went so well with the oysters that they started demanding other bars in the financial district of London serve it as well. Pimm set up a distillery to cope with demand, making his Pimm's No.1 to distribute far and wide.

Pimm's No.1 Cup is still based on great-tasting gin, with overlaying notes of spice, citrus and botanicals and fruit extract that create an enticing dark red tint and great flavour. These are what make Pimm's such a great spirit for mixing. Pimm's and lemonade complement each other perfectly. Serve in a Highball glass with plenty of ice and then turn to the garnish. Classically this is cucumber, strawberry, fresh mint and orange peel. Or use the vodka-based No.6 Cup as an alternative. Some people garnish with borage leaves and flowers in place of the mint, and apple segments are also popular. You can even switch out lemonade for ginger ale to add a gentle spice, and put in raspberries, blackberries or blackcurrants for a real fruit-filled flourish. Make a full jug of Pimm's No.1 with fruit and garnishes, stir with a wooden spoon and serve at your BBQ or summer gatherings. It's ideal for summer, but can be shared around at any time of the year.
