Pimm's or not to Pimm's...


Ten years or so ago, while in Nassau, The Bahamas, I bought a bottle of Pimm's Cup No.1. Garnished with a slice of orange, apple and cucumber and mixed 1 for 1 with Ginger Ale, it is a delightful drink. Hoping for a major buzz? This is not the drink for you. Alcohol content is only 50%,though gin-based. It has a sort of mild caramel flavor accompanied by the sweetness of the ginger ale. It was a favorite beverage when traveling in the UK for me ( no iced tea, there)!

So, my question is:

This bottle has been sitting in my home for ten years, unopened. Is it safe to open up and serve?
Comments, reactions and responses, please.

I say, open it and mix one. Then taste. If it tastes OK, then down the lot.

yep... you can also add vodka to it, just to make it a little more "special"... or champers, too.
