Our comment:

This pink, gin-based drink is light and fruity with lime juice balancing sweet raspberry liqueur and lengthened with ginger ale.

Variant:

Made with cognac in place of gin and this becomes a Florodora Imperial.

History:

Dating from the turn of the 20th century, this drink is eponymously named after a successful Edwardian musical comedy which originally opened in London in 1899 and then Broadway the following year. The show was famous for its chorus line of Florodora Girls, a "sextette of tall, gorgeous damsels, clad in pink walking costumes, black picture hats and carrying frilly parasols [who] swished onto the stage and captivated New York for no other reason than they were utterly stunning."
