Deliver Ingredients


  • 2 ½ Ounces Pimm’s No. 1
  • ½ Ounce ginger liqueur
  • 6 Ounces ginger beer
  • Cucumber, orange & lemon segments, and fresh mint


In the bottom of a mixing glass, gently muddle the cucumber, orange and lemon segments, and fresh mint just enough to release their juices and oils a little. Top with ice, and add the Pimm’s No. 1 and the ginger liqueur. Stir until chilled, and pour everything, ice and all, into a highball glass. Top with ginger beer.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
