A traditional Pimm's Cup may include slices of lemon and orange, mint, and sometimes rosemary or thyme, along with cucumber spears. We steeped the lemonade overnight with cucumber slices to bring out their flavor.

  • 1 large cucumber, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 1 cup Pimm's No. 1, chilled
  • 1 cup ginger ale, chilled
  • 6 cucumber spears (optional)
  • Mint leaves (optional)
