pimm's cups

Pimm's was our go-to drink while punting in Oxford but I hadn't heard of Pimm's cups until Jenna made them in our apartment last year. I saw Pimm's on the shelf at Happy Hour last week and after ordering a Pimm's cup, got lots of questions about what I was drinking. I (shamefully) was terrible at explaining what Pimm's was, but here's Jenna's world-famous recipe to clear up the rest of the mystery.

Jenna's Pimm's Cups
(makes 2)

6 oz
Pimm's
3 in. piece of cucumber, sliced
3 T lemon juice
1/2 tsp sugar
Ginger beer (J highly recommends the Maine Root Ginger Brew)

Muddle cucumber in shaker. Add Pimm's, lemon juice, and sugar and shake. Strain into glasses over ice and top with ginger beer to taste.

They're light, refreshing, and remind me of summer.
