The Florodora

Raspberries, lime, gin and ginger ale. All with a fresh flower garnish.



Level: Easy

Serves: 1


  • 6 ounces, weight Fresh Raspberries
  • ½ ounces, fluid Fresh Lime Juice
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • Ice
  • 1-½ ounce, fluid Gin
  • ½ ounces, fluid Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 bottle (12 Oz. Size) Ginger Ale
  • 1  Lime, Wedge For Garnish
  • 1  Edible Flower, For Garnish


Combine the ingredients for the syrup in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves and raspberries are slightly broken down (about 5 minutes). I wanted a drink with chunks in it so this is where I stopped. At this point, I put it in the refrigerator to cool. You may cook the syrup until the berries are completely broken down (probably another 5 minutes, then strain if you want a smooth syrup). Let syrup cool in the refrigerator before using.

Build with ice in a highball glass or a collins glass. Start with gin and lime juice over ice. Gently stir in ginger ale. Top with a tablespoon or so of the chunky syrup. Garnish with a wedge of lime and an edible flower. Edible flowers may be hard to find. I got mine at Whole Foods. Make sure any flower you use is pesticide free. I also recommend drinking this with a straw. It’s just not quite as pretty a scene with raspberry on your lip.
