Dread Pirate Pimms

1 1/2 oz. Cruzan Blackstrap Rum
1 oz. Pimm’s #1
a few Meyer Lemon Slices
a few Cucumber Slices
Crabbie’s Ginger Beer

Gently muddle a cucumber and a lemon slice in a chilled highball glass. Stir in Rum and Pimm’s. Fill with crushed ice and the rest of the Lemon and Cucumber slices, then top with Ginger Beer. Give it a quick, final stir and garnish with a Lemon Twist.

 
The first Pimm’s Cup I ever had was at The Pirate’s Ally in NOLA. It was on a typical blisteringly hot day and the cocktail instantly relieved any discomfort the weather dolled out. This is an homage to that, with some Rum making it more Piratey.
