Fall officially began a few weeks ago, but this weekend in NYC we were treated to a respite from the cold and wet recessional into Winter. With temperatures in the mid 70s, it was easy to forget that snow boots and heavy coats will be in our near future. The farmer’s markets were still flush with summer produce, and my backyard garden has some peppers and tomatoes ripening on the vine as we speak.
Let’s all enjoy a Pimm’s Cup and some green foliage while we can.
For this you will need the following:
A green garden setting
2 glasses filled with crushed ice
4 ounces Pimm’s #1 Liqueur
1 ounce John D Taylor’s Velvet Falernum*
The juice of one lime and one lemon
An ice filled cocktail shaker to combine the previous three ingredients
Shake, and divide into aforementioned glasses, garnish with cucumber wedges, top with club soda, and enjoy
*If you enjoy making cocktails, and have never heard of Velvet Falernum, you must run out and buy some ASAP. It’s a sugarcane liqueur infused with lime, almond, and cloves, i.e. simple syrup on appropriately aromatic steroids.
To add to the repertoire. Thanks, WGACA.
