  • 2 oranges, cut into rounds, then into half-moons
  • 2 lemons, cut into rounds, then into half-moons
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 2 cups Pimm's No. 1
  • 4 cups Sprite or other lemon-lime soda
  • 6 to 8 large mint sprigs, crushed gently, plus a few loose leaves

Directions

This version, from West Coast food stylist Valerie Aikman-Smith, is packed with cucumbers and citrus, making it extra-thirst-quenching and supremely summery. You can arrange the fruit, cucumber, and mint any way you like. 1. Fill 2 pitchers a quarter full with ice. To each, add a layer of orange slices, a few lemon slices, and a layer of cucumber slices. Repeat the layering. Pour in the Pimm's and Sprite, dividing equally between pitchers, and mix with a long-handled spoon. Poke mint sprigs and leaves down into drink. 2. Divide drink among 8 tall glasses, with a few slices of fruit and cucumber in each glass, along with some mint leaves.
