The Water’s Edge Cornish Pimm’s Recipe


try our cornish pimm’s recipe…

It’s cocktail o’clock! Is there anything more satisfying than an ice cold cocktail in the sunshine? Here at the Water’s Edge bar, we love experimenting with local products to recreate popular tipples. Our Bar Manager Yohann has invented the nation’s favourite summertime cocktail with a Cornish twist. Give The Greenbank’s take on the perfect Pimm’s recipe a try at home this summer with Curio Cornish Cup.

curio’s cornish cup

The Cornish company, Curio, is a spirits distillery based in Mullion in the west of Cornwall. Cornish Cup is a deliciously aromatic drink, inspired by the traditional punch used in the British Navy during the 17th century. Using a Mullion dry gin base, Curio have blended bespoke botanicals to create a Chai tea infused tipple. Best served with sweet lemonade, Cornish Cup is bursting with flavours of rich, malty Assam tea, exotic cardamom pods and cinnamon.

how to make our cornish pimm’s

To create his delightfully refreshing Cornish version of a classic Pimm’s, Yohann adds a large 50ml measure of Curio’s Cornish Cup to a gin glass, with ample ice. Then, he simply tops up with lemonade and garnishes with two chunky slices of lemon and a generous handful of fresh thyme. This spiced Cornish Pimm’s recipe is best sipped in the garden on a balmy summer’s evening. Bliss!
