The Pimmlet Recipe

Pimmlet cocktail

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.

  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.
