Fill a highball glass with ice. Top with Pimms, mixer, fresh fruit. Stir and garnish with a sprig of mint. A Pimm’s Cup (or Pimm’s Original) is great served in a carafe! Just increase the proportions to fit whatever vessel you are mixing it up in.
*A note on mixers: The traditional British and Aussie recipe calls for lemonade, which is similar to Sprite; it is not the same as lemonade in the U.S. This recipe would work with American lemonade, just may be a bit more tart.

This Northern Italian cocktail has been growing in popularity in the U.S., and is an absolute summer staple in Australia!
With a 1 to 1 ratio, this yum cocktail is easy to scale up and make a larger amount to pour and serve a few people. You can make it less bitter by decreasing the Aperol, or adding more club soda. Enjoy!

Our American team member was completely perplexed by this Australian pub classic. A shandy is beer - preferably a lager - topped with Sprite or ginger ale. The easiest summer cocktail of them all!!
If you want to make your shandy a bit fancier, check out this spiked summer shandy from Delicious magazine:
Method:1. In a large jug, combine everything. 2. Add ice and garnish with orange slices.
* Lemon lime bitters! This is a particularly Australian soft drink. It is made by mixing Sprite (or lemonade as we call it here), with lime cordial and a dash of bitters.
Stay Merry everyone!
