Pimm’s Lemonade for a Nashville Potluck Dinner… E.A.T. #9

PimmsPimms

Nashville’s Third Thursday Potluck rolls around very month & I always seem to be at a loss of what to take…what should be my offering for this fun event?

When in doubt I make cocktails…seasonal cocktails, libations, tonics, pick-me-ups…whatever I decide to concoct it always includes seasonal fruit or vegetables, an interesting alcohol or two or three & is suitable to the month.

Maybe a Pimm’s Cup?  Wanting to make this classic British refresher even more summer-like with the addition of fresh lemonade & some local summer fruits I got to work.

Here is what I used:

Ingredients for Pimms Lemonade

1 quart of fresh Lemonade, 2 cups Pimm’s Liqueur, 1 cup Limoncello Liqueur, a handful of blackberries, sliced apples, pluots or plums, peaches,  cucumbers, orange slices & lime slices & fresh mint.

Pimm's Liqueur

It is as easy as this:

1. Mix together in a large pitcher or jar the Lemonade, Pimm’s & Limoncello. Stir well.

2. Add cut up fruit to the pitcher filling pretty full. Cover & chill at least 2 hours before serving. Pour mixture along with some of the fruit over ice in glasses with a sprig of mint.  The fruit is deliciously tasty, crisp & cold after steeping in the mixture
