The cocktails by Liam Deegan, the bar director at Longway in New Orleans, lean mostly classic, but the Flørodoro is a simple but delightful mix of The Botanist gin, fino sherry, lime, Giffard crème de framboise (raspberry), lime and ginger beer. Bright, fruity, subtly spiced and floral, the fino imparts a dry backbone.

  • 1 oz Valdespino Inocente fino sherry
  • 1 oz Fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz Giffard crème de framboise liqueur
  • 1/4 oz Simple syrup
  • Ginger beer, to top
