This recipe plays up its herbal tones with a mixer of Pimm's No. 1 Cup, that classic English drink. It's often mixed with ginger ale or lemon soda, and this recipe also calls for ginger ale. All the herbaceousness gets a lift from lemon, mint, and cucumber. Sounds unbelievably refreshing! Ready for a sip of this after a long, hot day of gardening?
