How much Pimms do I need for my DIY Wedding?

Because I dry hire out my Pimms bike I often get asked how many bottles of Pimms/Lemonade would the customer need to buy for a certain number of guests.

I had a peep online and found this guideline which is quite helpful and should also give you a rough idea of cost. Pimms is usually mixed on a 3 to 1 ratio. Also remember that by the time you’ve added fruit and ice it will stretch a bit further too.

Based on 100 guests having 1 serving of Pimms in 70ml glasses here’s what you would need:

2 x 1 litre bottles of Pimms approx £15 a bottle £30
6 x litres of lemonade approx 50p per litre £3
Strawberries, Orange, Cucumber, Mint and ice to garnish
33p per per serving*

Based on 100 guests having 1 serving of Pimms in 340ml hi-ball glasses here’s what you would need:

9 x 1 litre bottles of Pimms approx £15 per bottle £135
27 x litres of lemonade approx 50 per litre £13.50
Strawberries, Orange, Cucumber, Mint and ice to garnish
£1.49 per serving*

A novel idea is to serve your Pimms in jam jars with a straw.
Based on 100 guests having 1 serving of Pimms in 200ml jam jar here’s what you would need:

5 x 1 litre bottles of Pimms approx £15 per bottle £75
15 x litres of lemonade approx 50 per litre £7.50
Strawberries, Orange, Cucumber, Mint and ice to garnish
83p per serving*

I hope this helps
