Floradora Cocktail Recipe

Floradora Cocktail Recipe

The Floradora is an enticing semi-sweet cocktail and an absolute classic.
Named after a British musical, Florodora was a monster hit at the turn of the century. So popular they created a cocktail, but it was incorrectly listed in 1933 Jack’s Manual as Floradora and the misspelling stuck!

When To Drink A Floradora

It’s a refreshing cocktail in the summer but miraculously sweet and spicy so great by the fire in the winter too. Drink it when you’re looking for an easy-to-make refreshing long drink, that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Our top tip for the most irresistible Floradora

Originally, the drink was made with raspberry syrup, but we will be using our raspberry gin, and British Cassis from our neighbours, White Heron Drinks. If you can’t find this then Chambord (black raspberry) will also be delicious in our Floradora cocktail.
