Breaking Down the Drink |Pimm's Cup


While most of us in the United States most likely didn't snag seats to Wimbledon this year, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy this slightly spicy and refreshingly tangy cocktail over the 4th of July weekend. In fact, the Pimm's Cup from Urban Table is "Americanized", so to speak, rather than Britian's version that would most often see a call for the use of 7-up in lieu of the lemonade and soda.
