Pimms Cup Spider Ice Cream Float

Pimm's Cup 'Spider' Ice Cream Float

This is my boozy, grown up take on a nostalgic childhood favourite. My Pimm's Cup 'Spider' Ice Cream Float is like dessert in a glass and perfect for warm summer days.

Servings 2


  • 6 strawberries, sliced

  • 120 ml Pimm's
  • ginger beer (I like Bundaberg)
  • 2 scoops ice cream (I used salted caramel)
  • Fresh mint & edible flowers (optional, to serve)


  1. Add the sliced strawberries and cucumbers to the bottom of 2 tall glasses. Add 60ml Pimm's to each glass.

  2. Top glasses up to three quarters full with ginger beer. Add a scoop of ice cream and top up a little more with extra ginger beer. 

  3. Serve immediately with a straw and optional fresh mint and flowers.
