GoNOLA Recipes at Home: Pimm’s Cup Cocktail

New Orleans is widely known for having some of the best cocktails in the country, and rightfully so! One of my personal favorites since moving down here is the Pimm’s Cup. Light and refreshing, it’s perfect for the upcoming spring and summer months. A little warning, since falling in love with this delicious cocktail, I have ordered it in other cities and it hasn’t quite been up to par. So now, I’ve saved this recipe in my phone and I can whip it up whenever and wherever I want and I know it’s going to be perfect. Give it a whirl! If you’re interested in other New Orleans cocktails, be sure to check out our post on where to get the best cocktails in the Big Easy.
