Pimm’s Cup: A Summer Classic

Pimm's Cup.  Brilliant!

Pimm’s Cup.   Brilliant!

Why m’dear, don’t mind if I do!

To a short cocktail glass (or half-pint Mason jar) filled with ice add:

2 oz. Pimm’s No. 1 Liqueur

2 oz. Extra Ginger Beer (such as Reed’s)

A generous squeeze of lemon (from about 1/6 th of a lemon, then drop it in the glass)

Stir gently with a long spoon.  Garnish extravagantly with cucumber, strawberries, orange slices, or a gingered kumquat in rum syrup (one of my new canning experiments this season.  I’ll share it with you soon!)

After a couple of these I start dropping the Southern thing and start sounding like Kate Middleton.  At least to myself.

Posh!

This is my gal Cosmopolitan’s (from our Supper Club) favorite summer cocktail.  I’d put it in my Top 5, for sure.
