Author Notes

A Pimm's Cup is a classic British summertime drink. It typically has a low alcohol content so it can be sipped all day long. Instead, I added gin to up the amount of booze, which I thought you may be into. This simplified version is super easy to make and refreshing to drink in the summer or any time of the year. —Look Cook
