Lychee Gimlet

Floradora Cocktail

post icon

Originating in the 1890s, the Floradora is a fresh cool highball cocktail that still stands tall in the 21st century. The refreshing combo of raspberries, gin, lime and a bite of ginger beer is just right on a summer’s eve. The trick with this drink is to pick a gin that is not overly junipery (yep that’s a word). We like Hendrick’s.

Ingredients:
3 parts gin
1 part fresh lime juice
Ginger beer
Fresh Raspberries… Read more
