Pimm’s Sorbet–Day 14: Ice Cream Marathon

Next to a mojito, a Pimm’s cup is one of my all time favorite drinks.  My mom first introduced them to me after she moved to London.  She sent along a bottle with me for my bachelorette party weekend and I was hooked. 

While it is a more summery drink, we had our fair share of them over the holidays when we visited my parents in London. 

I’ve found Pimm’s in most local liquor stores and its usually mixed with carbonated lemonade or ginger ale.  Garnishes can include oranges, mint, lemons, cucumbers, and/or strawberries. 

To me, the next best thing to a Pimm’s cup on a summer London day would be a scoop of Pimm’s sorbet on my deck.  Today I’ll have to settle for the latter.

Fill a glass with a few scoops and top it off with some sparkling lemonade or ginger ale.
