The British love for top-notch lagers and ales is well-known, but the English also know how to mix a good cocktail. From a fruit-loaded Pimm's Cooler to a smooth brandy-based Sidecar, here are a handful of our favorites.
Pimm's Cups, the drink to order at polo matches, are traditionally made with lemonade, lemon soda, ginger ale or ginger beer and are garnished lavishly with cucumber, mint leaves and fruit. This version incorporates Creole Shrubb, an orange liqueur made in Martinique.
Pimm's No. 1, a gin-based aperitif invented by London bar owner James Pimm in 1823, is the quintessential English summer-afternoon drink (and the traditional drink of Wimbledon). Here, it is combined with tea, another beloved British beverage.
