Whether you’re sick of hearing about Prince William and Kate Middleton’s upcoming nuptials or you’re brimming with excitement about watching the fairy tale unfold, the royal wedding celebration is a bloody brilliant excuse to have a drink!

What better way to celebrate or sneer at the obsession with the future king and queen than with a refreshing Pimm’s Cup cocktail? Pimm’s, a gin-based spirit flavored with liqueurs, fruits and spices, has an official Royal Warrant of Appointment from the queen herself as Distillers and Compounders to Her Majesty. Fancy!

Pimm’s Cup

8 oz. Pimm’s No. 1

24 oz. chilled lemon-lime soda

Add mint, cucumber, orange and strawberry.

Mix in a pitcher (call it a “jug” if you want to impress the queen) filled with ice.

Serves 8. Cheers!
