Pimm's Cup - June 26, 2011

The Pimm's Cup is the official potable of Wimbledon, much like the Mint Julep is to the Kentucky Derby. We are well into the second week of this year's Wimbledon tournament and if you haven't enjoyed one of these yet, now's the time. I sucked back a couple of these babies over the weekend while taking in some tennis matches. Here's my recipe, which is in no way the official recipe. I do believe there are as many ways to make a Pimm's Cup as there are seats at Centre Court.

Pimm's Cup (makes 1)

1/4 cup Pimm's No. 1
2 cucumber slices
1 - 2 lemon slices
small bunch of mint

Put these ingredients in a tall glass and add ice. Fill the remainder with ginger ale (I use homemade ginger soda).
