It's fantastic that you have gin, Pimm's, and Aperol available—all are versatile and can create some delightful cocktails. Based on your ingredients, here are a couple of cocktails you could make:

  • Primrose: This cocktail features an elegant mix of dry gin (45ml), Aperol (30ml), elderflower liqueur (22.5ml), lemon juice (15ml), and a dash of peach bitters. It's stirred, not shaken, and served in a cocktail glass, encapsulating a beautiful balance of citrus, floral, and bitter-sweet flavors. This could be a sophisticated choice for an aperitif or a refreshing social sipper with its complex yet refreshing flavor profile.
  • Summer Negroni: This is a refreshing twist on the classic Negroni, crafted with equal parts gin (45ml), Lillet Blanc (45ml), and Aperol (45ml). It's stirred and served cold in a lowball glass, often garnished with lemon wedges, adding a citrus zest that complements its bright and bittersweet notes. It's an ideal drink for warm weather and perfectly blends botanical, sweet, and bitter flavors.
Both options are highly rated (the Primrose has a rating of 4.39/5 and the Summer Negroni has a rating of 4.33/5), and they showcase the ingredients you have on hand remarkably well. If you're looking for a light, summery drink, I'd suggest starting with the Summer Negroni. For a more complex and botanical option, go for the Primrose.
