Pimm's Pony

  • TOTAL TIME: 15 MIN
  • SERVINGS: MAKES 1 DRINK

Eben Freeman, the mixologist at New York City's Tailor, creates a quick foam—a staple of any molecular mixologist—by simply shaking cucumber juice until it froths, then uses it to top his riff on a Pimm's Cup.

  1. 2 ounces gin
  2. 1 Kirby cucumber, coarsely chopped
  3. 1 ounce lemon-lime soda
  4. Ice
  5. 1 ounce Pimm's
  1. Puree the cucumber in a blender. Strain the puree through a fine sieve, pressing to extract as much juice as possible. Transfer the juice to a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the gin and Pimm's. Add ice and shake for 20 seconds. Strain the drink into a tall glass over ice and top with the soda. Vigorously shake the cucumber juice for 30 seconds. Spoon some of the foam onto the drink and serve right away.
