Pimm’s and superior alternatives (fruit cup/summer cup)

Pimm’s No. 1 liqueur isn’t all that good. That’s just my opinion, but I arrived at it many years ago (the 2000s) when someone turned up with a bottle of Plymouth Fruit Cup and it made dramatically more delicious drinks.

Since then, I’ve enjoyed a smattering of homemade fruit cups over the years, but haven’t seen much in the way of recipes.

This recent recipe on Punch caught my attention, as it has a DIY Pimm’s liqueur alternative from Sam Ross:

12 oz Fords gin
12 oz Carpano Antica Formula
2 oz Grand Marnier
1 1/2 oz Cherry Heering

Anyone have any other good fruit cup/summer cup preparations to recommend?
