When our pals + partners Gordy’s Pickle Jar announced the newest addition to their pickle-centric product lineup — Gordy’s Fine Brine — we knew we needed to whip up something boozy with it.

Brine is definitely a powerful flavor, so we needed a combo that could measure up. Here we go: a splash of Pimm’s, a mash of strawberries, and the bright crunch of a cucumber garnish.Strawberry Pimm's Cup with Gordy's Pickle Jar Fine Brine
