England – Pimm’s Cup

Pimm’s is a spicy, sweet gin-based British liquor.   It is the popular choice in the UK and has started to become popular in the US.

It was created in the mid-late 1800s by the English oyster bar owner James Pimm. The Pimm’s Cup was originally a tonic created to help with digestion due to its secret ingredients of different liqueurs and herbs. It was later re-branded into the beverage that it is known for today.
