The Pimm's Cup is to Wimbledon tennis what the Mint Julep is to the Kentucky Derby: one could not exist without the other! The Mommenpop version subs in our blood orange aperitif for vermouth, and we add a splash of fragrant strawberry syrup for a modern California riff on a high summer classic.
2 oz Mommenpop Blood Orange
1 oz gin
3-4 slices cucumber
handful of mint
Dry ginger beer, such as Fevertree
Muddle mint and cucumber with gin in a bucket glass.
Add Mommenpop Blood Orange and a generous number of ice cubes. Stir for 5-6 turns.
Top with ginger beer. Garnish with a bushy bouquet of mint.
