Pimm’s No. 1 is a gin-based Brittish cordial with a secret recipe created in the 1850′s. In 1949, the company hired a man known for his ability to create a buzz. This man sub sequentially hired two actresses to start a fight in a Manhattan club over whether the proper garnish is mint or cucumber. The scene these women’s created wound up making the papers. The jury is still out on preference.
