Flight of Fancy

When Charlotte Voisey makes the mint soda for Flight of Fancy, she uses it right away, to impart a grassy freshness to the drink. (Letting the herbs steep too long makes the soda overly minty.) For the gin she prefers Hendrick’s, because unlike classic London dry gins, which have strong spice flavors, it tastes of fresh cucumbers and rose petals.
