I created this drink as a variation on a Vancouver Cocktail, although I drifted a little further than I expected with the addition of Pimm's. I wanted something slightly herbaceous to highlight the subtle herbal aroma of the mezcal, and Pimm's No.1 felt like the perfect choice because it wasn't very sweet, and being made from gin it echoed the original Vancouver Cocktail, which was essentially a Martinez with Benedictine instead of maraschino.
Pigeon Park is a little square in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside where the homeless and junkies hang out or just take a nap. Still Vancouver, even thought it doesn't look anything like a postcard photo, yet not without charm either.
