Summer Libation Series: The Pimm's Cup

This drink is courtesy of my brothers who have been relentlessly plugging its hip variation, the Square Cup (w/ Square 1 Cucumber Vodka) . Although the Square Cup is available exclusively on the menu at Varnish (Downtown LA), I had it for the first time at Alembic on Haight St. (San Francisco).

For a cool summer cocktail with a hint of cucumber, serve these easy drinks at you're next summer outing and watch their eyes light up in amazement.

Fill a tall 12 oz glass with ice and add 1 1/4 oz. Pimm's #1 and 3 oz lemonade.
Then top off with 7up.
Garnish with cucumber.

*I like to muddle a few slices of cucumber at the bottom for extra flavor.

pimmssss!! they hosted my summer ball back last year while i was in London. You have to give it a few slices of lime and lemon too. If you're feeling risky add some wild strawberries or kiwi. excellent choice byron!
