If a Pimm’s Cup and an Arnold Palmer had a love child, it would be this irresistible patio pounder created by Veronica Correa, a San Diego bartender. 

“The only added sugar in the cocktail comes from the fresh muddled fruit,” says Correa. “There's no wrong way to do it; you can customize it however you like. I use Earl Grey tea, but you could experiment with fun teas like chamomile or peach.” 


  • 2 strawberries, halved
  • 1 orange wedge
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 3 mint sprigs
  • 1 1/2 ounces Jägermeister
  • 3/4 ounce cold-brew Earl Grey tea, cooled
  • 2 ounces ginger beer
  • Garnish: strawberry
  • Garnish: mint sprig


  1. In a shaker, muddle the strawberries, orange and lemon wedges, and mint sprigs.

  2. Add the Jägermeister and tea with ice and shake until well-chilled.

  3. Strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice.

  4. Top with ginger beer and stir gently to combine.

  5. Garnish with a strawberry and a mint sprig.
