Lynn's Cup

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

“This mocktail was a collaborative effort between a ‘slightly dehydrated’ barkeep and a pregnant woman,” says Greg Best. It’s light, delicate and similar in appearance to a Pimm’s Cup, but prettier—pink-hued and flecked with bits of strawberry, basil and cucumber.


  1. 2 cucumber wheels
  2. 1 strawberry, sliced
  3. 5 basil leaves
  4. Ice
  5. 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
  6. 1 ounce chilled Earl Grey syrup (3/4 ounce brewed Earl Grey tea mixed with 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar)
  7. 4 ounces chilled ginger ale
  8. 1 lemon twist and 1 mint sprig, for garnish
  1. In a chilled collins glass, muddle the cucumber, strawberry and basil. Add ice and the lemon juice, Earl Grey syrup and ginger ale; stir well. Garnish with the lemon twist and mint sprig.
