Pimm's for Pros

0 Ratings

A Pimm's Cup, so light, so airy, so ideal for daytime drinking. Leave it to the boys at the Wayland in the East Village to tweak the classic recipe and transform it into a vehicle for one punched-up evening of quaffing. Hardened with a backbone of rye, the Pimm's and ginger ale take the backseat.
