Guest post: Pimm’s lemonade cup

I fell in love with Tan’s blog as soon as I found it, some months ago. I think you will, too: there are DIYs and recipes, as well as fashion tips and wedding stuff. Intrigued? Check out Squirrelly Minds for even more fun stuff from this teacher-by-day and wife/blogger/cat owner-by-night. And to start you off, here’s a cocktail recipe sample:

With the closing of Wimbledon, it’s only fitting that this cocktail recipe include the British (and my personal) favourite, Pimm’s.

This is a spin on the classic Pimm’s Cup, a blend of pimm’s, ginger ale (or 7-up, but ginger ale is better) and a big wedge of cucumber. It’s my absolutely favorite drink on a hot summer’s day. This version adds a little more oomf with some lemon zing. Plus, the ombre effect makes it almost too pretty to drink. Almost.


  • 2 ounces Pimm’s No. 1
  • 3 ounces ginger ale
  • 3 ounces lemonade
  • Ice
  • Mint and raspberry to garnish (or a wedge of cucumber)


  • In a tall glass mix your ginger ale and lemonade. 3 ounces each is enough for a medium-sized glass but if yours is taller or smaller than adjust accordingly. Top with ice
  • Carefully pour the pimm’s over the ice so it floats on top
  • Garnish with a sprig of mint and raspberries
