Pimm's Cup

in the UK most pimms cups are made with (obviously) pimms, chopped cucumber, lemon, orange and sometimes mint and 'lemonade', which is what people in the UK refer to carbonated lemon flavored sodas such as 7-up, Sprite, etc.

I think the extra fruits (especially the mint), make the drink even more refreshing and interesting, so using a boring 7-up style mixer is acceptable, but then i've never tried it with ginger ale.

Filthy Martini

I make my Dirty Martinis the regular, mainstream, modern way (vodka + olive juice to taste. garnish with an olive and pearl onion) but the Filthy Martinis... oh, well they need something special, so i do:

2 Gin
1/2 anchovy-stuffed olive juice
rinse glass with dry vermouth
garnish with 2 or 3 anchovy-stuffed olives.

can also be made with vodka. either way it's flithy and delicious!
