The Pimm's Cup is really a classic English drink but Matt & I were inspired by the version at the Sample Room here in Minneapolis & added some Crispin Honey Crisp Apple Cider to it instead of lemonade. What could be more American than the good old apple, plus bonus, the honey crisp is a Minnesota variety! This little cocktail is not too sweet but has a nice honey flavor. be careful though, t's one of those drink that could hit you before you realize how many you've had. I went classic with the cucumber slice but I think next time I'll add an apple slice.
