wire + string

1 1/4 oz Pimm's No. 1
1 1/4 oz Campari
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Pineapple Syrup

Shake with ice, strain into a Collins glass filled with ice, and top with soda water (2-3 oz); I added a lemon wheel as garnish.

After dinner two Tuesdays ago, I began perusing the Brooklyn Bartender book for a way to round out the evening. There, I was drawn to the Wire + String crafted by Maks Pazuniak at Jupiter Disco. The combination of Pimm's, Campari, and pineapple was one that worked well in the Royal Cup #4, so I was definitely interested in seeing Maks' take on an embittered Pimm's Cup.
In the Wire + String, the lemon wheel garnish added to the Campari's orange bouquet. Next, a complex red fruit- and orange-flavored sip gave way to tangy bitter orange and pineapple notes on the swallow. Overall, an aspect of the profile here was reminiscent of strawberries perhaps from the Pimm's being modulated by the other fruit elements in the mix.
