Lemon-Thyme Pimm’s Cooler

Not long ago, I had the ladies from my running club over for a mamas’ night out. We all needed a drink. Husbands have been traveling, working long hours and otherwise not around as much as we would like, but the stars aligned and most of us made it out that evening. We kicked it on my back patio with some potluck goodies, wine and a nice pitcher of lemon-thyme Pimm’s coolers.

Lemon-Thyme Pimm's Cooler

This was the perfect drink for a warm spring evening enjoyed out on the patio with friends.

For the non-alcoholic version (a lemon-thyme spritzer), go check out my post on LiveMom, which features that recipe plus a couple of other non-boozy tipples. For the real deal, read on.

Lemon-Thyme Pimm's Cooler
Recipe type: cocktail

For the cocktail:
  • ¾ cup Pimm's No. 1

  2. Simmer for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside to cool. Once cool, strain out the lemon and thyme and proceed with the recipe.

  4. Stir gently before pouring into ice-filled tumblers.
