Pimm's No.1 Cup
The Empire, Ryan and I discovered Pimm's- an English gin-based liqueur infused with herbs and spices. How it slipped my attention for so many years, I will never know. We had it served with Gosling's Ginger Beer (which, btw, is also fantastic on its own) and Lime, over ice in a highball glass. After doing a little reading, I discovered the proper way to serve Pimms is as follows: Combine 1 part Pimm’s No.1 Cup with 2 parts Lemonade (lemon-lime soda), then garnish with slices of orange, cucumber, strawberry and a mint sprig. Better add those ingredients to my shopping list.
