Ingredients

  • 1½-2 ounces Pimm's #1 Liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup lemon-flavored sparkling water or seltzer
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated ginger root (optional)
  • sliced cucumbers, lemon, strawberries and mint leaves, to garnish
  • Chef notes

    If you've never heard of a Pimm's Cup before, you are in for a sensational summer sip. It's a deliciously refreshing citrus-ginger cocktail made with a gin-based liqueur. Traditionally, it contains sugary soda or lemonade, but my rendition cuts way back on sugar by utilizing seltzer, freshly squeezed lemon juice and a dash of anti-inflammatory ginger root.

    Preparation

    In a highball (tall) glass, add Pimm's #1 Liqueur, lemon juice and honey. Give it a thorough stir to combine the honey.

    Next, add in the optional ginger root, if using, then stir again.

    Add a generous handful of ice cubes and top it off with the lemon-flavored sparkling water or seltzer water.

    Garnish with cucumber, lemon, strawberries and mint before serving.
