In some ways, the Pimm’s Cup is Britain’s answer to America’s sherry cobbler, given its scant alcohol content and flashy garnish game.
The classic Gin and Tonic recipe gets a Spanish makeover with rosemary, thyme, and mint. Plus, add citrus and rinds in a big balloon glass as well. Festive!
In simple recipes, the little things count. This margarita variation gets a caramelly richness from aged tequila and agave nectar, bumped up with grilled lemon halves. The fruit gets browned quickly, then adds a slightly sweet, toasty flavor to the drink.
This remarkable drink draws out the floral, peppery character of aged tequila by pairing the spirit with a little good olive oil. While the drink also includes a whole egg, which helps the flavorful oil to emulsify properly, this is nothing like heavy eggnog. It’s light and subtle on the palate.
This rare treasure, an umami-rich sweet-salty-smoky chipotle number, balances juicy pineapple with grassy green cilantro. It straddles the line between sweet and savory: a handful of cherry tomatoes tamps down the fruity flavor without pushing the drink into full-on Bloody Mary territory.
