All it takes is one random comment.
I read about cocktails often. I had a bottle of Pimm’s and was figuring out what to do with it. A Pimm’s Cup is just fine (Pimm’s, ginger beer/ale, with cucumbers and mint), but I wanted to do something different with it.
While reading about variations on the Pimm’s Cup, in the comment section of this particular post, I came across someone who said the following:
“So the best Pimms Cup I’ve ever had was in New Orleans at this super old bar that I can’t remember the name of. The bartender had been working there for like 15 years and we talked Pimms. She infused her Pimms with cucumber, celery and carrots for 4 weeks and mashed the veggies in then double strained the liquor. She used a good ginger ale, and if you were nice she would throw in a rosemary infused gin topper.
Without a doubt one of the best drinks I’ve ever had. Just wanted to throw in another idea of what you can do.” [Emphases added]
I knew I needed to try this! I couldn’t find any other recipe similar to this description on Google.
Below is this unnamed cocktail that I just made, and it is indeed amazing, like this commenter said. This is not my idea, but this my recipe.
