Wimbledon spectators drink ten to fifteen thousand Pimm’s Cups every day. Americans often make the low-alcohol cocktail with Sprite or 7-Up, but Greg Best opts for the British way, using bitter lemon soda for “the perfect balance between sweet and tart.” Slideshow: British (and British-Inspired) Drinks

How to Make It


Fill a chilled collins glass with ice. Add the Pimm’s and lemon soda and stir well. Garnish with the lemon wedge, apple slice and cucumber spear.


Schweppes and Fever-Tree make high-quality, widely available bitter lemon sodas.
