Yes Pimm’s is great but a gin Pimm’s is a whole other level! Nectarines, cherries, cucumber and mint join Pimm’s, gin, lemonade and ginger ale for the ultimate sunshine cocktail. Ahhh, summer.

Prefer something with a little spritz? Try our Pimm’s fizz made with sparkling wine.


  • 3 nectarines
  • 200g cherries
  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 large bunch fresh mint
  • Lots of ice
  • Pimm’s
  • Gin
  • Ginger ale
  • Lemonade
  • Borage flowers


  1. To make a large jug, stone and slice the nectarines and cherries. Halve and slice the cucumber, then put all the fruit and cucumber in a jug with a large bunch of fresh mint and lots of ice so the jug is half full.
  2. Pour in equal amounts of Pimm’s and gin until the jug is two thirds full, then top up with half ginger ale and half lemonade. Finish with borage flowers if you can find them (they’re available in large supermarkets and they grow well in gardens or pots).
  3. To vary things, you could try sliced plums, summer berries, orange wedges, passion fruit pulp or pineapple slices. And instead of gin, try Cointreau – it’s much stronger in flavour so be sure to add it bit by bit.
