Pimm’s Cup, Improved


0.5 wheel
An orange colored citrus fruit. Many types of orange make an appearance in cocktails. The peel and juice are equally valuable to diverse cocktails.
1 slice
A refreshing tasting watery vegetable used in some cocktails like the Gin and Tonic. Some people say cucumbers taste better pickled.
0.25 oz
This syrup swaps in golden-hued demerara or turbinado sugar as opposed to processed/bleached white sugar. This gives a deeper, almost caramel-like flavor with a funky molasses nose popular in tropical drinks. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
1 oz
A carbonated soft drink flavoured with ginger. A 'dry' variety is sold with the addition of mint.
1 dash
A concentrated aromatic bitters made in Trinidad from water, ethanol, gentian and other herbs and spices; used in many classic cocktails like the Manhattan.
0.5 oz
A syrup with ginger root flavoring. Make it yourself: Combine 120mL fresh ginger juice, 100g superfine sugar (about 2:1.5 by mass). Or you can also boil some ginger slices in a simple syrup mixture. We always assume a 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
0.75 oz
The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
2 oz
Created in 1823 by James Pimm, this proprietary drink has a complex flavor, and tastes of spice and citrus. It is served in a long drink called a Pimm's cup.
1 sprig
Aromatic plants used in cocktails as a garnish or muddled into the liquor to add a light fresh taste. Common in the Mint Julep.

In a shaker tin, muddle the orange half-wheel and cucumber slice with the Demerara syrup. Add remaining ingredients, except the ginger ale, and shake with ice until shilled. Add the ginger ale to a tall glass with ice. Strain the mixture into the glass and garnish with a mint sprig, orange wheel and cucumber slice. #shake #ontherocks
