2 oz. Pimm’s No. 1
1/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
In a Highball glass filled with ice add Pimms, lemon juice and ginger ale and stir. Garnish with a cucumber slice.
This British Classic can be rather sweet if you don't add the lemon juice. It will also sneak up on you rather quickly on a warm summer afternoon so be careful.
Well I finally got my hands on a bottle of this Gin based spirit yesterday and had a grand afternoon mixing up a few of these old and storied cocktails. My throbbing head this morning is the consequence. However, the pain is a small price to pay to find another great addition to the Booze & Board Games Recipe list.
Our friend Jameson has done us a service in suggesting we try this refreshing libation from the British Isles, and once my head stops telling me the world is a very loud place, I'll make a point of thanking him.
