It's Pimm's O'Clock: The Pimmlet

I'm a sucker for good, relatively dry gimlets made with fresh lime juice, gin, and a bit of sugar (I don't dig the Rose's!), so it seemed only natural to attempt a Pimm's-seasoned variation of one.

Ingredients

  • 4 thin slices cucumber (about 1 ounce)
  • 4 large mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 ounces Hendricks Gin
  • 1/2 ounce Pimm's No. 1
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • garnish: cucumber and mint (optional)

Directions

  1. 1.

    Place cucumber, mint leaves, and sugar in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Muddle with a muddler until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Fill shaker with cracked ice and add remaining ingredients. Stir for 1 minute, then strain into chilled coupe or martini glass garnished with additional cucumber and mint.
