419 Westport Road | 816-931-4740

James Pimm was a Jeffersonian-coifed Englishman of the early 1800s who liked to improve on the already good. His first eponymous liqueur, or "fruit cup," was the No. 1 — a gin-based concoction tasting of citrus and lowdown, funky herbs — that Pimm served to patrons of his London oyster bar to aid their digestion (blef). What happened to Pimm's 2-6, each based on a different liquor — scotch or vodka or maybe rum, with weird shit thrown in — is lost to the annals of alcoholic history. But we know that the Pimm's No. 1 is alive and well and awaiting your sweet little face in Westport. The secret to Westport Café's version of the classic Pimm's — served by the cost-effective, easily drained $24 pitcher — is its princely combination of fresh mint and ginger simple syrup. The ingredients slide into bed with Pimm's original freak recipe like courtesans into Ben Franklin's boom-boom room.
