How can I make the perfect jug of Pimm’s?

While many pubs and bars serve the popular summer beverage, not all of them get the mix just right.

Here’s the recipe for the perfect traditional Pimm’s:

  • Take a jug (for several cups) or a glass and add as much ice as you like.
  • Pour one part Pimm’s No. 1 with three parts of carbonated lemonade over the ice.
  • Add mint leaves, slices of cucumber, orange slices and strawberries and serve.

What is Pimm’s?

The Pimm’s Cup’s origins date back to 1832 – when London-based oyster bar owner James Pimm started offering visitors a gin-based drink containing quinine and a secret blend of spices.

The drink became known as a digestion aid and was served in small cups known as “No. 1 Cups”.

By the end of the 19th century the drink was popular all over the United Kingdom.

The first Pimm’s bar at Wimbledon opened at the 1971 Wimbledon tournament – and these days over 80,000 pints of Pimm’s and lemonade are sold to ticket holders every year.

Are there still tickets for Wimbledon?

If you want the chance of watching your favourite tennis star, be prepared to wait in long queues – especially if you want tickets at Centre Court, No 1 or No 2.

Those tickets will cost extra on top of a grounds ticket, with prices starting at £25.

Tickets for the final four days – the semi-finals and finals – have already been issued and won’t be available.

For the rest of the tournament a grounds ticket will gain you access to the whole site bar the main three courts.

Meaning you can watch on Murray Mound or at any of the smaller courts.
