It was in 1922 in "Cocktails: How to mix them" by Robert Vermeire that we find the first traces of the Florida cocktail. In this recipe from 1922, the floridas are to be served in a small glass of wine and are composed of the juice of a lemon, the juice of half an orange, 3 dashes of Angostura Bitter, and 1 or 2 dashes of gum syrup (equals sugar syrup).

With its name which evokes Florida, the Florida is a fruity and refreshing cocktail, the gum syrup is sometimes substituted with grenadine syrup, even if it is not the original recipe the grenadine can actually give it some flavor. pleasant red fruit flavors as well.
