The Royal Wedding may have been a spring affair, but it’s still prime time for a tall, refreshing glass of English lemonade.
Kitchen 56 in Arcadia makes it with 1 ounce Beefeater Summer Edition gin, a floral spirit with notes of elderflower, black currant and hibiscus
flower; 1 ounce Pimm’s No. 1 Cup, a spicy and citrusy gin-based liquor made in England; 3 ounces freshly squeezed lemonade; one-fifth of a cucumber, chopped; and 2 mint leaves, torn to release the oils.

No fancy hats or gloves needed.
