Clover Club Elixir
What is a Clover Club Cocktail?
A Clover Club is a classic cocktail that balances the sharpness of gin and citrus with the sweet-tart flavor of raspberries, complemented by a silky frothy finish from egg white. Its visually appealing pink hue and lush froth make it as much a treat for the eyes as for the palate.
Make Any Drink With The Elixer Mixer
- 2 oz gin
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice

- Fresh raspberries, for garnish (optional)
- In your Elixir Mixer, add the gin, lemon juice, raspberry syrup (or muddled raspberries), and egg white.

- Add ice to the mixer to chill the mixture.
- Strain the cocktail into a glass and garnish with a fresh raspberry or a small lemon twist if desired.
Why is it called a Clover Club?
Named after the Clover Club, a men's club in Philadelphia, this cocktail represents the elegance and sophistication of the city's social elite during the early 1900s.
What does the egg white do in the cocktail?
The egg white adds a velvety froth and mouthfeel to the drink, enriching its texture without affecting the taste.
How can I make raspberry syrup?
Combine equal parts sugar, water, and fresh raspberries in a saucepan. Simmer until sugar is dissolved and the berries have broken down. Strain and store in the refrigerator.
Can I skip the egg white?
Yes, the cocktail will still be delicious without it but will lack the signature frothy texture.
How does this differ from a Pink Lady cocktail?
While both are pink gin-based cocktails with egg white, the Pink Lady usually includes applejack and sometimes cream, giving it a distinct flavor profile.
