Why We Like It

’Tis the season for jet setting. But if air travel has you a little on edge, before you take off, mix up The Mile High Club. This vodka-based cocktail from Gareth Evans at the Social Eating House in London serves as a relaxing reminder that flying is actually the safest way to get from Point A to Point B—and it will hopefully make your seatmates seem slightly less annoying.

Loosely based on a Clover Club, the Mile High Club features a clear base liquor and sweet and tangy mixers, along with an egg white and bitters at the end. But drink it while you’re on the ground; you’re not going to get a cocktail this good in the air—not even in first class.
