Today we teach you how to make the Floradora, a cocktail that Ian decides we will build in fast-forward. How fast can he build it and talk? Ian’s not a fast talker but…

The flavor of the Floradora mimics that of smarties, the candy. Ian nails it, Dan agrees and Derrick just sits in awe and wonder as the event unfolds. How can we build the floradora in two minutes _and_ have an alternate ending? Watch and see the Floradora cocktail being made in realtime, but fast!

– 1.5 oz. Gin
– 0.5 oz. Raspberry liqueur
– 0.5 oz. Fresh lime juice
– 4.0 oz. Ginger ale
– Garnish: lime wedge

While this cocktail brings out the sweet candy flavor, it’s not overly too sweet–it’s more of the balance of sweet to sour ratio and the gingerale picking up the mid-palate. Definitely a very specific sour cocktail flavor that’s fun for those that love to use raspberry liqueur. Probably not the definition of a modern classic, but fun just the same!
