Episode 23 covers Pimm's No. 1. A gin based spirit from Great Britain, it's a mainstay of Summer for the British when mixed into its signature cocktail the Pimm's Cup. At 25% ABV, or 50 proof, it's easy drinking, especially when mixed.

Brief Historical Timeline:
Pimm's No. 1 is basically a premixed punch. Much of this episode digs into the history of this "fruit cup" cocktail. Pimm's No. 1 is synonymous with the Pimm's Cup cocktail.
The British way is to mix 1 part Pimm's No. 1 with 3 parts Lemonade and garnish heavily with Strawberry, Orange, Cucumber and a sprig of Mint.
The American (or more specifically, New Orleans) way is to substitute the lemonade for Sprite, 7-Up or other lemon lime soda. And cut back on the garnish a bit.
