RECIPE

Florodora

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

Named for an Edwardian musical famous for its chorus line of “Florodora Girls,” this classic highball is made with gin, raspberry liqueur and a fresh ginger syrup. In David Wondrich’s Imbibe, the cocktail historian notes that originally the cocktail was made with fresh, muddled raspberries instead of a cordial—but we prefer the extra boozy kick and flavor the liqueur adds to the drink.
