When the recipe for the Floradora Cocktail showed up in my inbox from the Cocktail Enthusiast, I couldn’t wait to try it out. It contained several ingredients from my favorite food groups – gin, lime and ginger beer. The addition of raspberry liquer made it all the more tempting. The name was a winner as well. The Floradora is a classic cocktail that has been around for ages, and is being remembered again. As a grandma of a two and a half year-old, I also know Dora (the Explorer) is a rockstar’s name.
Here is how I made it.
1 1/2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce raspberry liquer (I used Clear Creek Distillery‘s)
4 ounces chilled ginger beer
Measure the first three ingredients into your tallish serving glass and stir. Add the ginger beer and a garnish of a lime wheel.
It’s easy to make, and easy to enjoy!
