NOLA and Pimms

Sometimes I come across a beverage and it forever signifies a time or place. For me the Pimm's Cup is New Orleans.

Fill a tall 12 oz. glass with ice and add

* 1 1/4 oz Pimm's No. 1
* 3 oz Lemonade
* Top off with lemon-lime soda (e.g., 7 Up).
* Garnish with a Cucumber wedge, Mint leaves, and an orange slice

If there is anyone in Chicago that knows a bar where they serve Pimms or a store where they have it please let know.

I have a ton of pictures from my trip. Coming soon!

I've never had a Pimm's Cup but it sounds really good. I'm looking it up and it's considered England's First Cocktail and can be found at a lot of the English Pubs in Chicago like Duke of Perth and Red Lion Tavern.
