A frozen version of the classic Pimm’s Cup cocktail. These Pimm’s popsicles combine Pimm’s No.1, fresh squeezed lemon-lime juices, and ginger simple syrup. Mint julep is to the Kentucky Derby as Pimm’s Cup is to Wimbledon. Traditional Pimm’s Cup is made with Pimm’s No.1 and lemonade. Why stop with a cocktail that is bound by a glass? Freeze it and turn it into a fun and festive summer popsicle! These boozy pops are delicious, intriguing, and refreshing! For another twist, try this summer pimm’s cup is made with cucumber mint lemonade! Ingredient Notes Pimm’s No.1 : Pimm’s used to produce seven varieties. Pimm’s No.1 is the most widely available. Version number two was scotch-whiskey based and number five was rye-whiskey based. Fresh Juices : Recipe uses a combination of lemon juice and lime juice. For the best flavor, use fresh squeezed juice! For a sweeter (less tart) version, use a mixture of lemon, lime, and orange juice. Ginger Syrup : Homemade simple syrup infused with fresh ginger root slices. Super easy to make from scratch, however, you may use store-bought syrup if desired. Garnishes : Fresh garnishes make a world of a difference. Have fresh sliced strawberries, sliced English cucumbers (or Persian cucumber), and mint leaves available. How to make cocktail popsicles Make ginger simple syrup by boiling together water, sugar, and fresh ginger. Set aside. Combine lemon juice, lime juice, water, ginger syrup, and Pimm’s No.1 together. Arrange a mixture of sliced cucumbers, strawberries and mint into popsicle molds. Carefully pour liquid mixture into popsicle molds. Insert popsicle stick into molds. Freeze for at least 6 hours until solid. Recommended Popsicle Molds I highly recommend this popsicle mold. (It’s the one photographed in this post). It is very easy to fill and breeze to clean.These stainless steel molds are also great. However, you need to purchase two sets to make a dozen popsicles. For a super versatile mold, I recommend these flexible silicone ice cream bar molds. These ruby chocolate strawberry swirl ice cream bars and these raspberry mango coconut pops use the silicone bar molds. You may also use items you already have at home: Ice Cube Tray: pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze. Once solid, process the cubes in a blender to make a slushy, frozen cocktail. Paper Cups: pour mixture into the paper cups, cover with foil, and pop a wooden stick in it. Freeze and then peel off the paper and eat. Freezer Safe Containers: use a freezer safe container such a shallow plastic storage container. Fill the container, cover, and freeze. Serve the frozen mixture like a granita, or allow to soften slightly and then scoop like sorbet. Serving Suggestions Might as well make a double batch: freeze one batch into popsicles and save the other batch for drinking. Nothing beats Pimm’s on Pimm’s. Just like the classic cocktail, serve the Pimm’s popsicles with fresh strawberries, cucumbers, and mint. For the ultimate presentation and experience, serve the popsicles in a glass of ice cold Pimm’s Cup! Have your cake and eat it, too! Freezer Storage Unmold passion fruit rose popsicles once solid. Serve immediately after unmolding. For longer storage, individually wrap each ice pop in plastic wrap. Store wrapped popsicles in an airtight freezer ziptop bag for up to a month. Keep in the coldest part of your freezer.
