Clover Club Cocktail

The Clover Club Cocktail is one of those classics that should live on in every mixologist's repertoire. According to The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book the drink was first created at the bar of the Bellevue-Stratford in Philadelphia, a popular hang out for "literary, legal, financial and business lights of the Quaker City" of the 1800's. Today grenadine is often used in place of the raspberry syrup, but I have to agree with Gary Regan in The Joy of Mixology when he advocates the use of raspberry syrup because "without it this drink isn't much to talk about."

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Shake vigorously (more than normal to properly mix the egg and sugar).
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
