1 cup Pimm’s No. 1
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 cucumber, sliced
8 strawberries, quartered
12 basil leaves, torn
lemon slices, for garnish
In a pitcher mix the Pellegrino, Pimm’s, and lemon juice. Mix in cucumber, strawberries, and basil. Let stand for 10 mins.
Fill 4 highball glasses with ice and pour cocktail evenly over the ice, making sure each glass gets
equal amounts of cucumber, basil, and strawberries. Garnish with lemon.
