For my second drink at Clio, bartender Todd Maul decided to make me a Pimm's & Lemon. The recipe was given to him by a guest from England. The gentleman requested one and when he discovered that Todd was not absolutely sure how to make this British drink, he provided his preferred recipe. Todd was a bit surprised how the recipe was less Pimm's forward than he had expected but was pleased at how the Pimm's played off the lemon. Todd improved on the request by making fresh lemonade with lemons and sugar instead of using a bottled brand. Moreover, Todd has been considering putting the drink on the menu as the weather gets warmer; however, he has been toying with idea of adding a little gin to make people happier with the alcohol content of the drink (Pimm's weighs in at 25% which puts this drink on the lighter end of the spectrum).
