The Floradora is a classic gin cocktail made with raspberry syrup, lime juice, and ginger ale. It’s fruity, refreshing, and a very pretty pink, too! I’m not sure why the Floradora isn’t a better known gin cocktail because it’s delicious, easy on the eyes, and made with readily available ingredients.
The Batanga is a lesser-known tequila cocktail that has a lot in common with the Cuba Libre (aka Rum & Coke). This spring-inspired riff on the Batanga adds a pop of cherry flavor with the addition of the luscious Luxardo Maraschino cherry syrup.
This bright and citrusy gin cocktail is the perfect way to add a little liquid sunshine to these frigid February days! With citrus season in full swing, deep winter is a great time to enjoy the sweet and sour flavors of mandarin oranges.
If you enjoy a spirit-forward Old Fashioned, and you also enjoy the classic flavors of Valentine’s Day, give this Chocolate Cherry Cognac Old Fashioned a go! Unlike the average Valentine’s cocktail, this silky smooth, elegant sip is full of flavor without being overly sweet.
