Pimm's Cup #21

There was no rotund introduction when Pimm's washed up at Tonic.  I'm now sure the bottle was hiding in plain sight behind the bar for weeks before I was aware of its inventory.  When the chance arrived to feature a cocktail using Pimm's, I went to bat.  So today, Tonic featured my take on the Pimm's Cup to accompany their crab special.  I have designated it "21" in recognition of 21st street which runs southbound through Foggy Bottom.

Pimm's Cup #21
- 1 1/2 oz Pimm's No 1
- 3/4 oz of fresh lemon/lime juice
- soda water, ginger ale press (1/2 soda water, 1/2 ginger ale)

Glassware: highball glass

Pour 1 1/2 oz of Pimm's in the glass.  Add 3/4 oz of fresh lemon/lime juice.  Then add a soda water and ginger ale press.  Garnish with a lemon and enjoy.

Christian added a touch of Old Bay to the rim to bridge it with a pile of Tonic's crabs.  Special thanks to him for the solicitation.  Perhaps Pimm's will accrue more attention.
