  • Excellent! Anytime you're thinking of Pimm's Cup for a nice summery drink, make this instead.
  • 2 frozen cucumber cubes per 1/2 cup measure

The original recipe calls for "fresh cucumber puree (peel and blend cucumber, then pass through a sieve)" but suggests muddling a few slices would be fine for the lazy. I found it gummed up the top of my cobbler shaker so I'd recommend the former.
