Yesterday I was in love with Vinho Verde today it’s Pimm’s Cup No 1. Are you familiar? The top secret gin based concoction out of England. If not you need to be. They won’t tell you what in it , besides the gin and secret flavors. Because that helps you figure it out.
Typically a Pimm’s Cup has ginger beer/ale, Pimm’s and cucumber but this one just takes it up a notch. Add in kiwi and use Diet Ginger Ale. It’s decently low cal and a slightly sweet but still savory cocktail. Delicious. I promise.
