Say cheers to Christmas with a Pimm’s cocktail
Let’s be honest, there’s nothing better than sitting back and cracking open a bottle of bubbly to kick off the Christmas season. Why not up the stakes this year with a wintery twist on the MVP of summertime tipples, Pimm’s.
Equal parts pantry-hacking and lip-smacking, my Christmas Pimm’s Cocktail puts that leftover bottle to good use. You might be thinking this picnic staple is a warm weather-only kind of drink. Think again. The subtle notes of bitter herbs, warming spices and citrus make it the perfect base for a festive drink.
Paired with fiery ginger beer and sweet pomegranate juice, this Christmas Pimm’s Cocktail comes together in minutes. Throw in an aromatic cinnamon stick to bring out all of those delicious festive favours and it’s ready to drink. Merry Pimmsmas.
