Pimm's Cup with cucumber simple syrup
A Pimm’s Cup typically combines Pimm’s with lemonade, lemon soda, or ginger ale, along with a slice of cucumber. As an upgrade, we’re relying on fresh cucumber and lemon juices for the ultimate summer sipper.
Test Kitchen Tips
If you don’t have a juicer, purée the cucumbers in a food processor, then strain the purée through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing to get as much juice as possible, then discard the solids.
Use a Y-peeler to slice thin cucumber strips — garnish glasses after adding the ice.
Whisk sugar into cucumber juice in a pitcher until dissolved.
Stir in Pimm's, gin, and lemon juice to combine; chill until ready to serve. Divide cocktail among four ice-filled glasses; top each with 2 oz. club soda, a mint sprig, and cucumber, lemon, and strawberry slices.
