For 1 drink:
1 and 1/2 ounces Pimm’s No. 1 Cup
1 sprig of mint
3 ounces lemon/lime soda or ginger ale
For a party make up a big punch bowl. The longer the fruit steeps in the mixture, the more flavor it will infuse.
For a party: Makes 8 drinks
- 2 oranges, cut into half-moons
- 2 lemons, cut into half-moons
- 1 Persian cucumber or one 3-in.-long piece English cucumber, washed and sliced
- 2 cups Pimm’s No. 1
- 4 cups Sprite or other lemon-lime soda
- 6 to 8 large sprigs mint, crushed gently, plus a few loose leaves
Fill 2 pitchers 1/4 full with ice. To each, add a layer of orange slices, a few lemon slices, and a layer of cucumber slices. Repeat the layering. Pour in the Pimm’s and Sprite, dividing between pitchers, and mix with a long-handled spoon. Poke mint sprigs and leaves down into drink. Divide drink among 8 tall glasses, with a few slices of fruit and cucumber in each glass, along with some mint leaves.
Notes: Persian cucumbers are small, thin-skinned, virtually seedless, and very tasty. They’re sold at well-stocked grocery
Refreshing drinks served at Wimbledon and cricket matches in England. Especially good when served with Indian food. You guys know I’d normally prefer to drink my juices from www.orangina-na.com/; however, sometimes I like trying something new.
