The last time I had a glass of Pimm's with all the trimmings, was on the lawn at a lovely old Elizabthan Hall, on a beautiful English summer's evening......so, I named my cocktail, Pimm's on the Lawn!! Nothing beats a glass of Pimms on a summer�s day. The British beverage is almost as much a tradition as the cup of tea, and the British down the gin-based drink by the gallon during the summer months. A history of Pimms: Step back to a London oyster bar in the 1840s where owner James Pimm invented the thirst-quencher. Using gin, quinine and a secret mixture of herbs, good old Pimm served up the brew as an aid to digestion, dishing it out in a small tankard and the No. 1 Cup moniker was born. After the Second World War, Pimms extended their range, using a number of other spirits as bases for new cups. Scotch lent its name to No. 2 cup, whilst No. 3 used brandy, No. 4 rum, No. 5 rye and No. 6 vodka. Of all of these, the vodka cup is the only one in production along with the original No. 1 cup, which still reigns supreme in popularity. Cheers!
