COCKTAIL RECIPE

DEBUG: cgb/block-vb-two-column

Napoleon House, on 500 Chartres Street in the French Quarter, is a New Orleans landmark. Founded in 1914 and a haunt for artists throughout the 20th century, the restaurant is famous for its signature Pimm's Cup. While the drink originates in London—yes, there's a Mr. Pimm—the cocktail has been a popular hit with NOLA's bon vivants since the 1940s. Here is the recipe...

Ingredients
1 1/4 oz. Pimm's #1
3 oz lemonade
7 Up, to top
Cucumber slice, to garnish

Directions

Fill a tall 12 oz glass with ice and add 1 1/4 oz. Pimm's #1 and 3 oz lemonade.
Then top off with 7 Up.
Garnish with cucumber.
