- 1/4 ounce Simple Syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon peeled, freshly grated ginger
- 3 to 4 mint leaves
- 1 (3/4-inch-thick) lemon wedge (about 1/8 of a medium lemon)
- 1 ounce dry gin
- 1 ounce Pimmâ€™s No. 1
- English cucumber, sliced lengthwise into strips with a vegetable peeler
- 1 1/2 to 2 ounces ginger ale
Place the simple syrup, ginger, mint, and lemon wedge in a cocktail shaker and muddle gently. Add the gin and Pimmâ€™s and stir to combine.
Fill an 8-ounce glass halfway with ice. Coil 1 to 2 strips of cucumber around the inside top half of the glass. Strain the contents of the cocktail shaker into the glass and top with the ginger ale. Stir gently and add additional ice cubes to fill.
