Here’s another fun cocktail I’ve found: the Clover Club.
This is a fun one to have in the spring and summer, though I won’t say ‘no’ to one during the rest of the year either. It uses fresh raspberries, gin, lemon juice, and creme de framboise.
It’s got a great bright pink color, and a rich, thick foam on top (thanks, eggs!). The fruit plays really nicely with the gin, and the creme de framboise gives it a bit more depth.
Dry-shaking the ingredients froths the egg up really well for that nice foam on top. It is of course permissible to cheat by using one of those protein-shake wire whisk balls and skipping the dry shaking, though.
Please pardon my windowsill.
The recipe is as follows:
1 1/2 oz dry gin
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz creme de framboise (or raspberry syrup)
2-4 fresh raspberries
1 fresh egg white (~2/3 oz)
Muddle raspberries and dry shake all ingredients, add ice, shake, and double-strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with another raspberry.
