One of the best summer drinks out there is a Pimm's Cup, which we get from the Brits. Of course, the fact that it features cucumbers makes it all the better.


  • Pimm's No. 1 (a gin-based liqueur)
  • Club soda
  • Lemons
  • Cucumber, sliced into thin spears
  • Ice

Fill a glass halfway with ice. Add a shot and a half of Pimm's No. 1 (about a fifth of the glass once it has ice) and fill with club soda. Squeeze in two slices of lemon and add two spears of cucumbers. For even more cucumber flavor, if you have a juicer, squeeze in the juice from a quarter of a cucumber.

This is a refreshing side dish or garnish for your hot summery meals.


  • 2 small-medium cucumbers
  • 3 cups plain yogurt - greek works great
  • 2 cloves garlic, or less if you're not a fan
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh mint leaves
  • squeeze of lemon juice, about a quarter or half lemon's worth
  • salt and pepper

First, prep the cucumbers: Cut the cucumber lengthwise so that you avoid the seeds (discard the core). Then dice what you have into centimeter-long pieces and set in one layer on paper towels to extract some of the moisture. Meanwhile, mince the garlic into the yogurt and finely chop the mint into it. Add lots of lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Finally, once you have created a refreshing and flavorful base, add the cukes.
