Pimm's Punch

This punch is light and refreshing, with hints of fresh cucumber and strawberries. It is easy to whip up and looks stunning with chunks of fresh produce. Pour it into little sealable jars to take with you on your picnic (or toss it all into a big punch bowl if you are throwing a party).

Simple Syrup

  • 1 large cucumber , peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup [100 g] sugar
  • 2 large cucumbers , unpeeled and sliced
  • 1 large orange , sliced
  • 1 large lemon , sliced
  • 1 lb [455 g] fresh whole strawberries
  • 1 bunch fresh mint leaves , rinsed
  • One 750-ml bottle Pimm’s No. 1
  • 2 cups [480 ml] gin
  • 4 1/2 cups [1 L] soda water or seltzer water
  • Ice cubes for serving


  1. To make the simple syrup: In a small bowl, combine the diced cucumber with the sugar. Mix until the cucumber pieces are completely coated. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight, or up to 8 hours.
  2. In a large punch bowl, combine the sliced cucumber, orange, lemon, strawberries, and half of the mint. Pour in the Pimm’s, gin, soda water, and the cucumber simple syrup and stir until combined.
  3. If serving right away, fill glasses with ice and ladle in the punch (make sure to scoop up a few cucumber and fruit slices). Garnish with the remaining mint and enjoy!
  4. If preparing ahead of time for a picnic, divide the punch between six sealable mason jars and store in the fridge until ready to leave. Bring ice and mint, for garnish, in a separate sealed jar and divide between drinks right before serving.
