Like a fancy tom Collins, this drink is all about bright, summery flavors - basil, lemon, and this particular gin's unusual hints of rose, peach, and raspberry. "This is the drink you want after you've been outside all day in the sun," says John McCarthy of Whitehall restaurant in New York. "It's t hat refreshing pick-me-up you have before you sit down for dinner." Pair it with a basil salad with grilled chicken and vinaigrette. "It works so well with the cocktail because they both focus on simple flavors," says McCarthy.
