In our role as the Official Sommelier of Trinity Repertory Company we are reviving our very own “Grumpy Cup” cocktail to pair with theater’s world premier of Arnie Louis and Bob. The drink is a riff on the classic British “Pimm’s Cup” cocktail with the addition of Crabbie’s alcoholic ginger beer and St. Germain elderflower liqueur. Be sure to catch a performance of the show to see why we think the Grumpy Cup is the appropriate cocktail pairing.
THE GRUMPY CUP Our own recipe!
Ingredients: – 2 oz Pimm’s – ½ btl. Crabbie’s Ginger Beer (or any other non-flavored, alcoholic ginger beer) – Lemon Juice Garnish: Lemon Wedge Directions: Fill a glass with ice, pour over with Pimm’s, and top off with Crabbie’s. Stir. Squeeze lemon wedge. *A bottle of Pimm’s makes about 15 Grumpy Cup servings.
Watch this video tutorial on how to make an easy and delicious British themed cocktail recipe. The Grumpy Cup drink idea is a Bottles (a Rhode Island liquor store) cocktail invention, and a twist on a classic Pimm’s Cup cocktail. The ingredients include Pimm’s, St. Germain and Crabbie’s (alcoholic!) Ginger Beer.
