Florious, gin cocktail

This is a slight adaption of the Flora Dora cocktail recipe on the Hendrick’s Gin site, which, it appears, also features all the graphic bits leftover from “Monty Python’s Flying Circus.” Hendrick’s Gin, distilled in Scotland, is noted for its rose petal and cucumber flavorings. We’ve replaced raspberry syrup with a raspberry shrub and the ginger beer with a quality ginger ale.
