If you've never had a Pimm's Cup before, you're in for a treat. The refreshing cocktail, long a favorite in the U.K., is editor in chief Eric A. Pike's go-to summertime drink. This version of it includes both its namesake, Pimm's No. 1 (a gin-based liqueur), and Crop Cucumber vodka. The result is a citrusy, herbal flavor that isn't cloying in the least. Cheers!
This enduring classic conjures images
of afternoon tennis matches and
drinks on the lawn. Often made with
lemonade alone, our cocktail includes
ginger ale to mellow the flavor
of Pimm's -- a fruity, spicy gin-based
liqueur -- and make it effervescent.
