Bull’s Modified Pimm’s Cup


  • Author: Bull Garlington

Description

The best way to enjoy a Pimm’s cup is at the Napoleon House in New Orleans (they might make other cocktails, but you’d never know it). If you can’t make your way to the Big Easy, here’s a version that takes advantage of how the gin base of the famous English liquor, Pimms No. 1, pairs with cucumbers and lemons–both perfect summer flavors.


Ingredients

Scale
  • Cracked ice
  • 1.5 ounces of Pimm’s No. 1
  • .5 ounce of Hendricks (If you are lucky enough to stumble across their Orbium or Summer Solstice limited-edition gins, use one of those.)
  • .5 ounce of fresh lemon juice
  • About a half-inch of a Persian cucumber (any cucumber if you can’t get the little Persians)
  • Natural ginger ale
  • Lemon slices and cucumber slice to garnish

Instructions

Muddle the half-inch cucumber chunk in the bottom of the glass with a lemon slice. Fill with cracked ice. Add the Pimm’s No. 1, gin, and lemon juice, and fill to the top with ginger ale. Stir gently and serve.
