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. Slideshow: More Great Gin Cocktails

How to Make It


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the Mint Soda and garnishes and shake well. Fine-strain into a chilled, ice-filled collins glass, then stir in the Mint Soda. Garnish the drink with the mint sprig, skewered cherry and lemon wheel and the pineapple leaf.
