Day 102 Drink: Pimm's Cup
Muriel's on Jackson Square in New Orleans is just steps away from St. Louis Cathedral and the food and service is some of the best you will find in the French Quarter. The bar also makes some great cocktails, including a classic New Orlean's style Pimm's Cup.
The recipe for a Pimm's Cup originates in England, but New Orleans bartenders claim they have perfected the drink. It starts with Pimm's No. 1 Gin, fruit juice is added and then it is topped with ginger ale. A cucumber slice is used as the garnish. The drink is light and refreshing. Perfect for a warm spring day looking out the open doors of Muriel's on the passing parade of tourists and New Orleans locals.
