With its name that evokes Florida, the Florida cocktail is a fruity and refreshing cocktail that exists today in multiple recipes, all different from each other, with and without alcohol. The most common recipe to date is the one above.

It is likely that the Florida was created by the historic bartender Robert Vermeire, because it is in his 1922 publication "Cocktails: How to mix them" that we find the first traces of this cocktail. In this original recipe, the floridas are to be served in a small glass of wine, made in a shaker and are made up 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.
