Pimm's and Tonic Recipe

Pimm's and Tonic
Wes Rowe

This super-easy highball is great with Fever Tree tonic, though feel free to substitute your tonic of choice.

Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
