There are a host of slight variations on this classic drink. We started with this recipe.

1/2-inch thick lemon wheel
2 ounces chilled Pimm’s No. 1
4 ounces chilled 7UP, lemon-lime soda, or ginger ale
ice cubes

Place cucumber couple of mint leaves, and lemon in glass. Muddle. Add a couple of ice cubes, Pimm’s and choice of carbonated beverage (I prefer ginger ale). Enjoy!
