Drink of the Week

The Clover Club

  • 2 oz Dry Gin (Martin Millers is my personal preference)
  • 1 oz Fresh Lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz Raspberry syrup (or Grenadine)
  • Egg white

Dry shake ingredients, then shake with ice and serve up or in a sour glass.

Garnish: Original recipe calls for a Marasca cherry, but I like a Raspberry!

It’s VALENTINES week!! So why not enjoy this beautifully pink classic (and my personal favorite) alcoholic beverage. This is the drink I order the most when i’m not in the mood to try something new. It is fruity,  sweet,  sour and creamy.  It is a member of the Sour genre and sometimes referred to as a ‘Gin Rose‘.  As with the Whisk(e)y Sour the egg white is not added for the purpose of giving the drink flavor, but used as a thickening agent. When the drink is shaken a foamy head is formed and makes it taste fluffy and light. SO yummy! As with the Whisk(e)y Sour this drink should technically be served in a sour glass, but I do love it in a coupe, it is my favorite glass after all! 🙂

Make sure you go somewhere that uses fresh ingredients to order this drink, I am really picky about raw eggs in beverages but if you go to a good Mixology Bar you will be fine.

Go out with your love this week and order this pink beauty!

HAPPY VALENTINES!!!!

    Perfect! We still have raspberries in the garden and I can make the syrup fresh – the hens are laying as I write and there are plenty of lemons on the trees – how organic is that?! Happy Valentines SJ and FG

  2. I am a big Martin Miller fan as well. Yum!
