The Bar Is Open!

I have all sorts of recipes, stories and projects that I've been meaning to share with you lately, but I've been really busy. Tonight, though, is Friday night and the bar is open!

We got this recipe from an old bartender's guide. There are some old and quirky, fun recipes in this book and we had a hard time choosing. This one is quite a bit like the Tom Collins we made last week, but sweeter and pink! If you follow the recipe you will get two drinks.

Floradora Cooler
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon raspberry syrup or grenadine
  • 2 oz. carbonated water
  • lemon/lime carbonated beverage (7-Up)
  • ice

Place lime juice, powdered sugar, raspberry syrup or grenadine (we used grenadine), and carbonated water. Stir well, do not shake. Pour into ice filled glasses and add lemon/lime beverage to top of glass. Stir gently.

As always, please enjoy responsibly. Happy Friday!
