This is NOT a Pimms Cup. It’s a classic for a reason! If you want to screw around with it, fine; but don’t claim your cute little oncoction is something it’s not!

Here’s the correct Pimm’s Cup recipe (I’m a Brit so it’s approved). 1/3 Pimms, 2/3’s Sprite, add: Slices of lemon, lime, apple, berries (+ cucumber if you like) and a BIG handful of mint.
