Highball: Pimm’s Cup

Pimm's 4

Hello, I hope you are having a lovely weekend!

During the dreamy and serene past weekends, I indulged in rereading The Great Gatsby… I became enthralled by the idea and charm of simple classic cocktails constantly mentioned in the novel: the Highball.

Served in an Old Fashioned or Highball glass, the Pimm’s Cup is by far one of my favorite-if not my favorite- Highball.

Here’s how to make it

Pimm’s Cup
-Pimm’s No. 1 is a gin-based liqueur with a wonderful dark hue and delicious orange, molasses, and spicy notes.

1 1/2 oz. Pimm’s No. 1 *
1 slice of cucumber, cut lengthwise about 1 cm thick
1 mint sprig
lime or lemon wedge
ginger ale **

Pimm's 1

In an old fashioned or highball glass add desired amount of Pimm’s No. 1, ice, ginger ale, and some drops of lime juice. Garnish with cucumber, mint sprig, and lemon wedge.

* Make it as strong or as light as you wish, this is just a guideline.
** Normally made with 7-up, but I believe the gingery taste of ginger ale pairs beautifully with the spicy notes of Pimm’s No. 1
