This week: How to Make a Clover Club

The clover club cocktail has been a tradition in Philadelphia for over 120 years. Originating in the Bellevue hotel in the late 1800’s, it is still celebrated all around the U.S. in cocktail bars and lounges. There are many different recipes out there for this cocktails, but they all include an egg white, which is what gives it a beautiful creamy texture. Our gin of choice for this cocktail is Bluecoat Gin. Not only because it is distilled in Philadelphia, but it’s citrus forward notes pair perfectly with lemon and raspberry.

This is the last cocktail in our first series of drinks for the Home Bar Project. Our goal was to have our audience have the tools, ingredients and know-how to make perfectly crafted classic cocktails. We hope you learned a thing or two along the way and expect us back with more soon!

Ingredients:
Fresh lemon juice
Raspberry syrup*
Gin
Egg white
