The Pimm's Cup is a British classic that's great for summer afternoons and brunches with friends. It's light on alcohol (using only Pimm's No. 1 as a base spirit, coming in at 50 proof) but fresh and delicious, and like a Bloody Mary you can add nearly any fresh fruits and vegetables you want to make it your own.
|2 oz Pimm's No. 1|
|3 oz lemon-lime soda or ginger ale|
|1 slice cucumber|
|1 slice orange|
|Twist of lemon peel|
Preparation: How to make a Pimm's Cup
