Pimm’s Cup Royale

  • Servings: makes 1 drink

According to Greg Best, the Royale was created during "an intense brunch service" at Holeman & Finch. "A newly married couple was telling us how they loved the Pimm's Cup but had to drink too many to get that 'brunchy, buzzy' feeling." Determined to keep the balance of the classic while pleasing his guests, Best added Cognac, peach liqueur and Champagne.
