We spent much of the long labor day weekend at our little cabin, in the salty, clear waters of the Puget Sound, floating on cheap floaties or paddling the canoe. Then we picked up ourselves and the dogs and went to Bainbridge Island to spend a lovely evening with some friends who recently moved there. With a house just a quick portage to the water, we of course ended up paddling with them, too. And after an evening of beautiful water time, we learned how to make a Pimm’s Cup. Here’s a tip – it’s super easy. And super refreshing. And now it’ll always remind us of late summer, paddling, our friends, and Puget Sound.
In a rocks glass, add 1/3 Pimm’s and 2/3 Aranciata Limonata (or other sparkly lemony soda drink). Toss in a few muddled mint leaves and serve on a balcony, with a charming dog or two, and the after-glow of a sunny summer evening.
- Pimm’s No. 1 Liquor (1/3 parts)
- Aranciata Limonata Soda (2/3 parts)
- Mint leaves (muddled)
