“The perfect cocktail for the warmer months, with its refreshing flavors & inviting appearance. It’s fantastic on a hot summer brunch, as it is poolside with the sun on your face. It’s low on alcohol too, so don’t be shy about having more than one.”

1/2 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
2-3 chunks of English cucumber
Ginger beer

1. Muddle the English cucumber in a shaker
2. Add the lemon juice, Pimm’s & ice
3. Shake it and strain into a Collins glass with ice
4. Top up the cocktail with ginger beer
5. Garnish with a cucumber wheel
