Floradora is a nice gin long drink that is similar to a Rickey but sweetened with grenadine. That accounts for the pretty pink color that is rightly described by its name. I was saddened to see that no garnish was suggested for a drink that just asks to be dressed up. I went with mint, but a flower or fruit slices would be acceptable as well.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. grenadine
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • sparkling water
  • Optional garnish of mint sprigs or a flower recommended.
Combine all ingredients except for garnish and sparkling water in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled highball glass full of fresh ice. Top with sparkling water and stir gently. Garnish at will.
