Take lemonade to the next level by infusing it with cucumber, then adding a splash of Pimm's No. 1 liquor and ginger ale. Pimm's No. 1 is a gin-based liquor made in England from dry gin, liqueur, fruit juices and spices. It tastes like citrus fruits and spices. It's available at Queen Liquor, 1744 W. Uintah St.
