The official long drink of Summer 2006

I declared the Dark N Stormy to be the offical long drink of Summer 2008 and in turn referenced past "official Summer drinks." In 2006, it was all about the Pimms Cup.

Tall glass full of ice
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/4 oz Cointreau
3 oz Pimms
Top with lemon lime soda
Garnish with a cucumber wheel or spear (the snack is the best part!)

You can go the easy route and just use Pimms topped with soda, but you could also go to Ryan's Steakhouse and call it a fine steak dinner.

I also like to add a splash of gin (afterall Pimms is gin based, but on the weak side.) This is not any "official" recipe I've ever seen printed, so I'll put it as a footnote.
