The Pimm’s Cup is a very summery cocktail, light and easy to drink and garnished with cucumber and fresh fruit. This fall focused take on the classic was a hit at October’s Cider Season class. A chai tea syrup and some hard apple cider transition it nicely to cooler weather.
2 oz Pimm’s
1/2 oz chai tea syrup
1/2 oz lemon juice
2 oz hard cider
Garnish: apple slice, freshly grated cinnamon
Combine all ingredients except cider in shaker with ice. Strain into Collins glass and top with hard cider. Fill with ice. Garnish. (For chai tea syrup, combine equal volumes of brewed chai tea and sugar. Store refrigerated.)
