22 Pimm’s-Filled Ways To Toast The Royal Baby

The birth of the royal baby is a serious historic event. Please, don’t let that stop you from recognizing it as an opportunity to make booze-filled cupcakes.

It’s Pimm’s O’Clock Somewhere!


Whether or not you’ve been swept up in the royal baby hysteria, you might as well use it as an excuse to buy a bottle of Pimm’s No. 1. A gin-based liqueur with hints of citrus and spice, it is arguably Britain’s most delicious export.
