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:
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.
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
It’s summer, Drink your fruit! (It’s Gluten Free!)

Awesome TT. The Pimm’s cup is one of our favorite NOLA drinks and it is great to see options using this product. As usual, the shots and story are AWESOME!!!!
I am sure that Ann would love this! Thanks my friend.
would sunday morning be inappropriate for such a luscious libation?
I think it would be perfect

That looks delish!
Well it really was….I am thinking this month’s Third Thursday drink will have something to do with Peaches & Basil? Might want to come with me to try it out.
The Pimm’s Lemonade was indeed beautiful and refreshing. We all loved the variety of summer produce swirled into the batch.
Pimm’s Lemonade looks so summery. I just stumbled over here from Rachel Eats. Thanks for a nice alternative to summer sangria.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a message. You know this would be a good Sangria alternative.
What an interesting and pretty cocktail. Great photos as usual. 🙂
Karen, try this some time..it was a big hit at our gathering….
Beautiful and refreshing drink!! I want to make this! I know of the Pimm’s Cup but have never had it before and it looks like you made a great variation 🙂
