The Fruit Cup

This bright refreshing non-alcoholic cocktail mimics some of the delicious characteristics of a Pimm's Cup; and as Wimbledon's fortnight of strawberry indulgence has just begun, I thought it fitting to show a non-alc version of one of my favorite summer cocktails.

There are many different versions of the quintessential English summertime thirst quencher but Gin has always been in the No 1 Cup. 

Here, I’m using The Spirit of Gin blended with our brand new The Spirit of Milano plus a healthy dash or 2 of bitters to recreate the unique flavors of the Pimm's Cup. The fizz comes from a combination of Fever-Tree’s Spicy Ginger Ale and Distillers Cola which adds some extra botanicals to the mix.

A fruit cup needs a plethora of berries, citrus and of course cucumber to finish the cocktail and if you're lucky enough to be in the right season, an edible flower called Borage should adorn the drink. A beautiful cocktail that would look quite at home atop a lady's hat at Ascot or perhaps Wimbledon.

 Here’s the recipe and the simple steps to make it:

  • 1.5 oz The Spirit of Gin
  • 1.5 oz The Spirit of Milano
  • 2 oz each of Distillers Cola and Ginger Ale
  • 2 droppers full of All The Bitters NA Aromatic Bitters (or  2 dashes of Angostura)
  • Garnish with sliced
  • Strawberry, Orange, Cucumber, Mint and Borage Flowers if available.

 Method:

  • Build the cocktail over ice in your favorite giant wine glass or highball, just make sure there's room for a kitchen sink full of fruit and vegetables!
  • Give it a stir and ensure there’s enough ingredients left over for another one.
