This version of the classic British cocktail was created at Arthur’s Bar & Grill for its opening on Christmas Eve 2010. The original cocktail is served with ginger ale whereas this edition is mixed with Sprite and, Shiso Shochu is added in order to bring smoothness and freshness to this pretty masculine drink.
Pimm’s No. 1 is a gin-based potation made in England from dry gin, liqueur, fruit juices, and spices. It was created in the mid-18th century by English oyster bar owner James Pimm. The recipe is still a secret; supposedly, only six people know exactly how it is made. It has a dark, golden brown color, a medium body, and a taste of quinine, citrus fruits, and spice. Its low alcohol content of only 25 percent has made Pimm’s a drink to have when you are having more than one.
