We made it. It's Friday. Time to unwind with family and friends, catch up on some reading, and spend time outside. Time to go to brunch or the bar and spend a little too much money on indulgent food and drinks. I don't drink often, but I love a good craft cocktail or glass of wine on occasion. I especially love drinks with cucumber and herbs! One of the signature cocktails at my wedding was a vodka tonic with cukes and herbs: Simple, refreshing, and just sweet enough.
A Pimm's Cup is a thirst-quenching, supremely summery drink (in England, it's a must at cricket matches) that mixes lemony soda, fruit, cucumbers, mint, and a fortifying shot of gin. Pimm's No. 1, a gin-based drink, was invented in 1823 by James Pimm, who served it at his oyster bar in London. Try making your own this weekend; it's easy!
