Skinny Heathen

My absolute favorite, sparkly, warm weather (I love it anytime, really) cocktail is the PIMMS Cup.  I love the taste, it's history and I'm always shocked at how many local bartenders look at me like I have two heads when I ask for one; I can't believe how many people have never heard of it.  I recently had the best Pimms Cup at The Standard in NYC.  The lightened up version below is for one serving, but to make a pitcher, just scale up accordingly, keeping the 1:3 ratio of Pimm’s to Apple & Ginger + Tonic:

1 1/2 ounces Pimm’s No. 1
2.5 ounces Club Soda (instead of Ginger Ale or Reed's Ginger Beer)
2.5 ounces of Lithe Foods Apple & Ginger (BFF)
, 1 slice cucumber, 
1 slice lemon (plus more for squeezing)
, slice of strawberry, 
and a few mint leaves. 

Combine the Pimm’s, Club Soda & Apple and Ginger in a Collins glass, Add ice until the liquid comes almost to the rim of the glass. Add cucumber, lemon, strawberry, mint, and serve.

Yield: 1 serving

What a delicious combo! Pimm's Cup is one of my favorites, too :) Can't wait to try!

Pimms is a British summer institution!!!! I'm always happy to see it on bar menus. It's also good with diet 7up/sprite and as many of the fruits mentioned as possible(orange, apple, strawberry and LOTS of cucumber) Delicious. Tastes like summer.

The Dandelion in Philly has a great one. I once dragged my friends to four resturants to find one in Brooklyn. I will try this next time I am in Philly.
