The first time I had a Pimm’s Cup I was in New Orleans in the summer for a family wedding. My mother, my adult daughters, and I all went on a cocktail walking tour of the French Quarter. This cocktail was the perfect antidote to the heat and humidity of NOLA. Happy Mardi Gras!
1-1/2 ounces Pimm’s Cup No. 1
3 oz Lemonade
Lemon-lime flavored soda (See tips)
1. Fill a tall glass with ice and cucumber slices.
2. Add Pimm’s Cup, and lemonade.
3. Top with Lemon-lime flavored soda and stir gently.
Pimm’s No 1 is gin-based liqueur that tastes of spice and citrus. I used Sierra Mist for my lemon-lime soda.
