Dixie Cup

We were just down in New Orleans for Tales of the Cocktail and poked our heads into the famous Napoleon House bar in the French Quarter to get a Pimm's Cup. One of the best, most refreshing summertime cocktails, it's a must-have. 

So now that we're back in Nashville, we wanted to do our spin on the classic Pimm's Cup and of course the first thing that came to mind is moonshine! Well, not just any moonshine, American Born Dixie Moonshine. It's a sweet tea moonshine that seriously tastes amazing! 

We paired it with some muddled cucumber, a little Pimm's No. 1 and a splash of club soda and the next thing you knew, we had one hell of a summertime sipper!

equipment:

cocktail shaker
muddler
collins glass
bar spoon

ingredients:

1.5 oz American Born Dixie Moonshine
1 oz Pimm's No. 1
4 slices cucumber, divided
2 oz club soda

method:

Place three of the four cucumber slices in the bottom of your cocktail shaker and press with your muddler to release the juice and flavors. Add the booze and a few ice cubes and give it a quick shaker before transferring entire contents to your glass. Top with club soda, give it a light stir to combine and garnish with that last remaining slice of cucumber.
