Pimm and Proper

You guys ready to get fancy on this fine Friday?

Today's Martini Moment is not a martini at all. It's been a while since I've done an unexpected pairing and the last one was a big hit. Without any adue I give you Pimm's Cup and Lamb Skewers. Each compliments the other. This cocktail is the perfect summer drink! Here is how to make it:
  • 1 1/2 oz Pimms
  • 1/4 Gin
  • 1/4 cucumber, muddled
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 4 oz Ginger Ale
  • 2 mint leaves

Add lemon juice, mint, and cucumber to glass and muddle (like crazy). Add ice and the remaining ingredients, the add Ginger Ale last. Using a vegetable peeler, peel a cucumber length-wise. Using a pick, thread a cucumber, curling it as you go. Garnish with cucumber and rosebud. Whaaaat? Best garnish ever? Yes.

Next just throw some lamb and red onion on a skewer, sprinkled with Rosemary and Garlic. This is a perfect combination for a dinner party or just dinner!

Have an absolutely perfect weekend!
