A vodka play on the classic Florodora, the original fruity gin drink from the early 1900's. The Crimson Mule pays homage to the original cast of the Broadway hit Floradora, all of which were strictly red-headed women. The drink itself is vibrant and fruity with a hint of spice, and alongside a premium vodka, is a refreshing twist on the gin equivalent.
