2.5oz Texas White Pimm’s

.5oz mint syrup

.25oz lemon

6 blackberries

6 cucumber slices

2 lemon wheels

2 spearmint sprigs

Grapefruit-ginger soda

1 spearmint sprig (for garnish)

1 lemon wheel (for garnish)

Everything is bigger in Texas, and this Texas remix of a Pimm’s cup represents the Lone Star State proudly. Grapefruit, Texas’ signature citrus, leads the charge on the tastebuds. Flanked by mint, blackberries, cucumbers, lemon and house-made Pimm’s, this is the perfect fruity, botanical and refreshing libation for some front porch sipping. The ginger provides a nice finishing kick. The cocktail’s purple color pays homage to the late Pimp C. UGK would be proud.
