Journey back to 19th Century Britain with this refreshing summer cooler.

Note that if you decide to use sparkling water, add 3/4 oz. of simple syrup to the mixture before shaking.

  • 1 slice cucumber
  • 1 1/2 oz. Pimm's No. 1
  • 1/2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • Lemonade, ginger ale, sparkling water

Place cucumber in a shaker and muddle thoroughly. Add Pimm's, lemon juice, and gin (and simple syrup, if using). Add ice and shake vigorously. Pour into a tall glass over ice, garnish with slices of cucumber and lemon. Top with lemonade, ginger ale, sparkling water. Garnish with a lemon wheel.
