Here is my recipe for this easy & unique summer cocktail:
Makes 1 tall glass
1-1.5 oz of Pimm's Liqueur
lemon lime soda, ginger ale, or lemonade
a handful of ice
2 cucumber slices
1) Take one cucumber slice and one or two strawberries, then cut or crush them a little, and put them in the bottom of the glass. Reserve the other strawberries and cucumber for garnish.
2) Measure out the Pimm's and put it into the glass, and then nearly fill to the top with the soda, ginger ale, or carbonated lemonade.
3) Add a handful of ice, give it a stir, garnish with a strawberry and cucumber slice.
-strawberries and cucumber slices are optional, but make a lovely addition to the cocktail. However, the drink is still tasty without them!
-I typically use 1 oz of Pimm's and lemon lime soda
-a striped straw is always a nice touch
-this makes a lovely, unique, and easy cocktail to share with guests
-for friends who don't partake, an iced herbal tea would yield a similar taste. :)
Anyone else wondering why them Pimm's is always gone? ;)
