This Sparkling Strawberry Pimm’s Cocktail is a fun fruity effervescent cocktail that is really easy to make. It is just the thing to sip as you say “Cheers” and watch Meghan Markle and Prince Harry get married. It’s a festive cocktail with a British twist!
A Sparkling Strawberry Pimm’s Cocktail is an easy to make three-ingredient cocktail made with pureed frozen strawberries, Pimm’s, and prosecco. When I was planning out my week of Royal Wedding Party content for the site, I wanted to add a cocktail and I thought that Pimm’s was the most British option.
If you are not familiar with Pimm’s, it is a classic British spirit. It is a gin-based drink that was first introduced in 1823, and it is commonly used in British cocktails, especially a classic Pimm’s Cup. Pimm’s is herbal and slightly fruity, it isn’t something that you drink straight, but it does make a great cocktail.
I kept these Sparkling Strawberry Pimm’s Cocktails on the lighter side since I created this drink to serve at a Royal Wedding Watch Party, which would take place during the morning or early afternoon depending on your time zone. Of course, you could opt to make this cocktail a bit stronger by adding more Pimm’s – or a touch of gin.
To make this cocktail you just combine the frozen strawberries and Pimm’s in a blender and puree. Then you pour the puree into glasses and top with prosecco. The preparation time is just minutes. I like to garnish the cocktail fresh strawberries, mint, and a slice of blood orange.
This cocktail would also be perfect to serve at a bridal shower, it is light and fruity, and you can serve it with pretty fruit garnishes and colorful paper straws.

You can serve the cocktail out of a pitcher or add the puree and prosecco right into the glasses. Either pour the puree into a pitcher, add ice, and slowly add the prosecco - or divide the puree between 6 glasses, top with prosecco, and add garnishes.
