Fruit, citrus, carbonation, minty green juice. Serve in a hurricane glass and you’ll be set to weather any storm!
Instructions: Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Cover and shake until chilled. Serve immediately.

A popular concoction founded in New Orleans, Pimm’s Cup is cool and delightful. We’ve put a twist on Pimm’s original recipe and made it more “family friendly,” but no less delicious.
