Pimm’s No 1 Recipe – the quintessential English summer drink, as synonymous with long summer evenings here as Wimbledon and strawberries and cream.



  • 1 part Pimm’s
  • 3 parts lemonade (7UP/Sprite)
  • lots of ice
  • some mint leaves, crushed/bruised
  • strawberries, quartered
  • cucumber, in small slices

Additional fruit:

  • blueberries, lightly crushed
  • apples, in small pieces
  • lemons, sliced
  • limes, sliced
  • peaches, in slices, along with any juices


  1. Place everything together, either in large measures in a large jug for a crowd or if for one or two, in smaller servings.
  2. As mentioned above, make it an hour earlier if possible, adding the ice just before serving.


Nutritional information is based on 1 serving made with 30ml (about 1 fluid oz) and 125ml (1/2 cup) 7Up. Fruit hasn’t been taken into account.
