This might sound like an odd combo, but it's really not. Just an elevation of the classic Pimms Cup, but like a million times better. Refreshing and pretty simple to make, this is a great summer cocktail.
-Pineapple Pimms Cup-
1.5 oz Pimms #1
1 oz Plantation Pineapple rum
heavy .5 oz fresh lemon juice
.5 oz mint simple syrup
1.5 oz Bundaberg ginger beer*
Shake all ingredients together (including ginger beer!), strain into a pilsner or collins glass and top with fresh ice. Garnish with 2-3 cucumber slices.
*Bundaberg ginger beer is widely available and really hits the sweet spot at finishing this cocktail. It's not over sweet, spicy, or funky. I tried a few ginger beers in this cocktail and it works the best.
