This Pimm's Cup inspired sparkly beverage is the best midweek pick-me-up.
Mocktail means no booze, so there's plenty of fun for the whole family!
pimm's tea (2 cups brewed strong and chilled)
1 bottle ginger beer
4 springs fresh mint (2 for muddling, 2 for layering)
6 strawberries (2 whole for garnish, 2 sliced for layering, 2 for muddling)
6 thin slices cucumber (4 for layering, 2 for garnish)
2 tsp lemon juice

- Layer the bottom of each glass with strawberry slices, 2 slices cucumber, and the mix of muddled strawberries and mint.
- Take the remaining 2 sprigs of mint and bruise them by giving them a few strong whacks on the inside of your palm. Divide these mint leaves between the two glasses. Fill glasses with ice.
- Pour 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 cup chilled Pimms tea, and half the bottle of ginger beer into each glass.
- Garnish with 1 slice of cucumber and one whole strawberry, wedged into the rim of the glass. If you have lemons or oranges lying around, throw in a few citrus slices as well.
Pinky out, and enjoy. Cheers!
