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.
2 ounces gin
1 ounce lime juice
1/4 ounce raspberry shrub
Chilled ginger ale
Pour all the ingredients over iced into a highball glass. Stir. Garnish with a mint sprig.
