Eric's Pimm's Cup Cocktail

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!
