Tasting Pimm's Blackberry Elderflower, and Making Pimm's Cup the Proper Way

One of the little luxuries of living in the Phoenix area is that come winter, we get to brag about the mild climate to our friends who are snowed in somewhere back east. One of my favorite ways to do this is by mentioning that while they're stuck salting roads, the only thing I'm salting is a margarita glass.

Of course, one can't live on frozen margaritas alone. Not that I haven't tried when I'm poolside midsummer, but I digress. One of my favorite beverages any time of year is Pimm's Cup, which is both the name of a quintessential British quaff, and the spirit used to make the beverage.
