Do you love cocktails that are not just delicious to taste but a feast for the eyes as well? In that case, Clover Club is the perfect drink for you! This pre-prohibition gin cocktail is a one-of-a-kind drink that boasts an enticing flavour profile and unmatched elegance. 

This classic gin cocktail has an intriguing history that dates back to the late 19th century. The legend has it that this delightful drink was crafted at a private men’s club in Philadelphia called Clover Club. The delicious gin cocktail quickly became popular among the members and soon found its way across the country and beyond. Today it’s one of the most popular gin cocktails worldwide.

The Clover Club cocktail recipe is a unique blend of sweet, sour and fruity flavours. It brings together, gin, fresh lime, raspberry syrup, and egg white in a delicious mix. This cocktail recipe features Gordon’s London Dry gin. A juniper-forward gin that boasts a delightful blend of handpicked botanicals such as coriander, angelica and liquorice. Gordon’s London Dry gin is crisp, smooth and has a mild finish. Known as the ginniest of gins, Gordon’s London Dry gin is perfect for mixing flavourful gin cocktail recipes. It creates an impeccable foundation for the rest of the ingredients for the Clover Club cocktail.

The other ingredient in the cocktail recipe, raspberry syrup offers a fresh and sweet taste, and fresh lime juice balances the flavours with its zestiness. The egg white brings in a delicious foamy texture. Don’t worry if you can’t get your hands on the fresh raspberry syrup. Grenadine can work just as well as a substitute. 

Mixing this cocktail at home is super easy. Simply dry shake the ingredients first without adding ice and then fill the shake with ice and shake again. This will help emulsify the egg whites and create a silky smooth drink with an attractive foam on top!

If you want to achieve the right balance of flavours, it’s essential to use suitable measuring tools while mixing your cocktail.
