FLORA DORACocktail Recipe

As floral and as fizzy as the mythical carbonated gardens of Alusdusa, the Floradora is a gin cocktail that is not afraid of the seductive power of the raspberry. (Come to think of it, who is afraid of the seductive power of the raspberry?). Serving suggestion: follow with a love poem beneath a meteor shower. The bartender Jimmy O’Brien created the drink for a young actor from the cast of the Edwardian musical comedy ‘Floradora’; she claimed that she had already tried every cocktail, and O’Brien responded by creating this miraculous cocktail just for her.
