The Pimm's Cup is a highball consisting of Pimm's and either ginger ale or lemon lime soda. Though the label on the Pimm's bottle doesn't mention it, this drink is traditionally garnished with a slice of cucumber.
The Pimm's Cup is a typically English summer drink. In essence, this drink is a kind of gin sling, since Pimm's No. 1 is gin based.
