English summers and a glass of Pimm's and lemonade go hand in hand. Keep the proportions to one part Pimm's, three parts lemonade, as too much Pimm's can be overwhelming, and too much lemonade will water down the delicious Pimm's flavour.


  • 200 ml Pimm's No 1
  • 600 ml lemonade, chilled
  • 1 sprig fresh mint
  • 1 small cucumber, sliced (peel left on)
  • 10 sprigs mint
  • 1 medium orange, sliced
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, hulled and halved
  • Ice, to fill the jug


  1. Fill a glass pitcher with ice.
  2. Mix the Pimm's with the chilled lemonade in the pitcher with the ice.
  3. Lightly crush the mint in your hand to release the scent and oils, and add it to the pitcher along with the cucumber slices, orange slices, and strawberries.
  4. The rule of thumb is to add 2 slices of cucumber to one of orange and strawberry, but add as much or as little as needed to achieve the fruity flavour of your liking.
  5. Refrigerate until chilled.
  6. Serve

Recipe Notes

  1. Substitute ginger ale for the sparkling lemonade for a drink with a peppery kick.
