Floradora

About The Cocktail

This cocktail is said to have originated at the Waldorf Astoria and was named after the Florodora, a fictional fragrance from the Broadway place of the same name. This was both a homage to the six starlets of Florodora that captured New Yorks imagination and to its playwright, Jimmy Davis, whose extravagant lifestyle and gambling makes for a story more fascinating then the play itself. The pseudonym, Owen Hall, for which he wrote the play under was actually a pun on ‘Owin All’ alluding to the constant financial debt that he’d accumulate.
