Red hot chili pepper
Pimento is no tonic, no ginger beer and no lemonade. Pimento is simply pimento, not comparable to other soft drinks on the market. When you take a sip of pimento, you immediately notice that the drink is reasonably sweet. However, it only takes a brief moment before the ginger and the chilli start their work. After a few seconds you will feel the drink burning on your tongue, lips and in your throat. The hot taste makes you tend to drink this soft drink more quietly than a regular tonic, but do not panic, it’s not like eating an extremely hot pepper. The drink is pretty spicy, but even people who are not really crazy about red hot chili peppers will undoubtedly enjoy Pimento.
Pure, or ‘in the mix’
You can drink pimento pure, with a few ice cubes, but the drink can also be perfectly used as the base of a mocktail. For example, pimento tastes great when you add a little lime juice. The lime juice ensures that the sweets are removed a little, which is nice if you are not really a sweet tooth. Pimento can also be used as the base for numerous mocktails. We are looking for the nicest combinations with Pimento and will publish the recipes here as soon as we have discovered a nice mocktail with this cool, hot drink.
