just because: another cocktail recipe from Eric Felten

Just because I love Eric Felten's "How's Your Drink?" column in the Wall St. Journal, and just because I'm a sucker for raspberry anything, I present to you the Florodora (named after six singing Gibson girls, the Florodora Sextette, who were a huge hit on Broadway starting in 1900):

1 1/2 oz gin
3/4 oz framboise
1/2 oz fresh lime juice (and don't let me ever hear of you using that nasty Rose's stuff)
3-4 oz ginger ale

Build in a highball glass with ice. Garnish with a slice of lime and some fresh raspberries, if you have them handy.

Sucker for raspberries, eh? If you ever come to Toronto, look up Amsterdam brewing. They have two raspberry beers which are absolutely stunning.
