By the way, in order to make something very close to a classic British Pimm's Cup, I suggest that you mix 1 oz lemon juice, 1 oz simple syrup and 3 oz club soda. Mix that with 2 oz Pimm’s No. 1 Cup and 1 slice cucumber. You might want to garnish with a strawberry slice and a mint sprig.
Girls girls girls. Chill. Save it for the polo match
HTTR, I think what Jeanne was trying to get across is that the classic Pim's Cup cocktail doesn't use soda but instead lemonade, which in case you don't know is not the same as lemon-lime soda (note that she may be a Brit and they tend to use the work "properly" a bit different than we do). I can only imagine she wished to share this in the event readers are unfamiliar with the especially refreshing classic version which eschews soda and loads of fruit, and is brilliant in its simplicity. Yes, anyone can add soda and fruit to any drink, but you need not jump down someone's throat for wanting to offer an opinion based on their experience.
Jeanne why leave a comment to bash this recipe, did you even try it make it as it reads? Of course not. I suppose for you it's much easier to just leave a negative comment. BTW the recipe says "ginger ale or lemon lime soda" so it is "properly made". Also, the so called "properly made" says that you are suppose to "garnish like crazy" so it's entirely up to whomever makes this & what they decide to garnish it with in the end. There is not right or wrong in terms of the garnish my dear.
It is properly made with sparkling lemonade, not ginger ale and not filled with a ton of fruit. A thin slice of cucumber and a strawberry slice is all it needs as a garnish.
