Influencer / Alcoholic/Cocktails / Drinks / Quick and Easy / Summer

6 portions


  • 50ml pure maple syrup (preferably amber for its rich taste)
  • 250ml Pimm’s no. 1
  • 500ml ginger beer (alcoholic or non-alcoholic)
  • Ice to serve

To garnish

  • Strawberries
  • Mint
  • Lemon
  • Orange
  • Cucumber


  1. Slice the strawberries, lemon, orange and cucumber and pick the leaves off the mint sprigs. Add the garnish ingredients to the jug, leaving some for when you serve the drinks.
  2. Pour the maple syrup into the jug.
  3. Fill the jug around one third of the way up with Pimm’s. Depending on the size of your jug, this will be around 250-300ml. 
  4. Add cubes or crushed ice to the jug and top up with ginger beer. 
  5. Fill your glasses with the leftover garnish, ensuring each glass has a little of everything. Add an extra ice cube to each, then pour and serve immediately.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
