The story of the Floradora Cocktail

The drink is named after a popular Broadway musical comedy that ran from 1899 to 1907. It is said to have been invented by a bartender at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, who was inspired by the show and its glamorous stars.

The Floradora Cocktail is a versatile drink that can be customized to your taste and preference. You can use any type of gin you like, from a classic London dry to a more floral or citrusy one. You can also substitute the raspberry syrup with raspberry liqueur if you want. The original recipe is said to have been with ginger ale. But there are more and more variations with the spicier ginger beer, which I personally prefer.
