This Apple Pimm’s Cup takes a twist on a popular summer cocktail using Fall flavor. This recipe can be easily scaled up to make a few pitchers, enough to serve a whole group of thirsty dinner guests.
Pimm’s cup cocktail is my favorite Summer drink of all time. So this year, I decided to make an Apple Pimm’s Cup using apple cider and fresh apples to highlight the Fall season. For a stronger cocktail, you could replace regular sparkling apple cider with hard apple cider. But I love the lighter version because you can sip on it all night long without getting too tipsy.

The recipe included in this post makes enough to serve four. But you can easily scale up for larger parties, and also scale down for a more intimate get together. Although this Apple Pimm’s Cup is so good, there is absolutely no reason to scale down.
You will notice the recipe calls for lemon, not a quite an Autumn flavor here. But the main purpose for using lemon in this recipe is to keep the cut up apple from oxidizing or turning brown as they sit out, waiting to be used as a garnish for your drink. And I think it also adds a little zing to the cocktail.
This lighter cocktail would be a great addition to any of the upcoming holiday dinner parties you are throwing. It is so easy to throw together even at the last minute. Just imagine gathering around the dinner table or the living room with your friends and family, sipping on a good drink and chatting all night long. That’s what this season is all about to me.
So enjoy this delicious Apple Pimm’s cup! And if you’re still thirsty for more Pimm’s, check out this Pimm’s Sundowner cocktail.
