The Floradora cocktail is a light and sweet gin-based drink dedicated to the chorus girls of one of Broadway's first successful musicals.
The Floradora is a classic cocktail that you might not know, but you should know because it is a truly fabulous gin drink. It is semi-sweet, tall, refreshing, and beautifully pink.
The cocktail was named after an early 1900s Broadway musical comedy. The name was originally spelled "Florodora," following the show, and the cocktail was a hit among New York's high society up through the 1950s.
Originally, the drink was made with raspberry syrup, but it now uses a framboise liqueur (raspberry-flavored) almost exclusively. There are a number of raspberry liqueurs available; Chambord (black raspberry) is the most common poured into today's Floradora cocktails.
