Bartender Says: "Pimm's is a proprietary cocktail in a bottle created by James Pimm in 1820 for his London oyster bar, and we're paying tribute to that forgotten trend with our Pimm's Cup cocktail. Fresh mint and thinly sliced cucumbers are lightly bruised during shaking to release the aroma, and topped off with ginger ale, which opens up the bright flavors of the cocktail." —Dusan Zaric and Jason Kosmas, Co-owners/Bartenders

2 oz. Pimm’s No 1
3/4 oz. Cointreau
3/4 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
3 thin cucumber wheels
6-7 fresh mint leaves
1 oz. ginger ale

Pour Pimm’s, Cointreau, and lime juice into a Collins glass. Add cucumbers and mint. Fill with large cold ice and cover glass with a small shaker top. Shake briefly and top off with ginger ale.
