What does Pimm's liqueur taste like?

What Does Pimm's Taste Like? If you're not a fan of sweet, crisp, light drinks, Pimm's will probably not suit your fancy. However, it's the drink's fruity lightness that makes it a staple of summer, and it's much less bitter than many other gin-based drinks such as gin and tonic.

Similarly, what is the flavor of Pimms?

Pimm's is the familiar name for a liqueur that is formally known as Pimm's Cup No. 1 (the same as the mixed drink, though the drink typically drops the 'No. 1'). It is a gin-based liqueur with a deep red color that is flavored with 'herbal botanicals,' spices, and caramelized orange.

Also, what is similar to Pimms? Here are some refreshing alternatives for any summer occasion

  • Sipsmith's London Cup. Known as the 'grown up' alternative to Pimm's, gin distillers Sipsmith have aced the summer beverage with this refreshing summer cup.
  • Bloom Strawberry Cup. Fancy something a little more fruity?
  • Ableforth's Summer Fruit Cup.

Moreover, can you drink Pimms on its own?

A splash of Pimm's gives the traditional Mimosa a tart, almost malty taste that makes it a completely different and exciting drink in its own right.

Is Pimms a posh drink?

Pimms is a posh drink originally intended for posh people. The 'Jeeves and Wooster' types of the 1920's and 1930's would probably have the fifty fits at the thought of the oiks getting their hands on some. Single Malt Whisky/Whiskey is much better and a lot more refined than that dreadful Pimms rubbish.
