A Pimms Cup for Summer

Strawberry Shrub ‘Pimms Cup’

This shrub is just great with soda water but if you’re wanting a more festive drink, this boozy summer punch will hit the spot without all the sugar of a regular Pimms cocktail. You can add other fruit to the jug, oranges work well too.

Try this shrub in a salad dressing with baby spinach, grilled haloumi, fresh strawberries or peaches and cherry tomatoes, it will bring together the sweet and savoury aspects to a summer salad.



90ml Strawberry Shrub

150ml gin

4 strawberries, halved

½ cucumber, sliced

1 lime, sliced into thin rounds

4 sprigs of fresh mint

650ml soda water (or lemonade if you want it sweet)


Fill a jug with a generous handful of ice, add the shrub and gin and stir well. Throw the sliced fruit in and top with soda water or lemonade and serve immediately. This should make around 6 standard drinks.
