Pimm’s Cup

FUN FACT: During the prohibition, Pimm’s was the drink of choice for America’s wealthiest. The British import had to be shipped in from London and Ireland and of course that cost more than the average person could afford to spend on an illegal beverage. Today, getting your hands on a bottle of Pimm’s isn’t treason or expensive at all.

TASTE: a refreshing iced tea

Add fresh lemonade + sliced cucumber + lemon + strawberries

Watermelon + Lime Vodka

If this drink doesn’t embody the free-spirited fun mood of summer, you made it wrong! Kidding, you can’t mess this perfectly fruit cocktail up.

TASTE: a tropical getaway, should really be served to you poolside
