Pimm's sundowner on wildwildwhisk.comDidn’t I warn you that I have a little bit of an obsession with Pimm’s right now? Half the bottle is gone! Playing bartender was too much fun, I couldn’t stop! Except, I was trying to recreate this one drink I had in Vancouver last year, still couldn’t get it right, most tasted disgusting… gah. But that is a story for another day. I even passed the cocktail bug to Ryan, and he decided to make an old-fashioned, lighting an orange peel on fire and everything.

I sort of love Pimm’s, did I tell you that?? And plus, these drinks are so easy to make, pour pour sip sip, no shaker needed.

I used fresh squeezed orange juice, but apple juice from the bottle since I didn’t want to use the juicer for just 1 oz of juice. That darn juicer has got too many parts to wash. Plus we always have a bottle of apple juice in the fridge, ready at any time when my cocktail making mood strikes… uh huh…

While the Pimm’s cup is very festive, the Pimm’s sundowner is perfect for winding down your day ;).
