Invented around the turn of the last century, this drink was named after a group of high-fliers that would meet at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia. Try to use some raspberry syrup or make your own with fresh raspberries and sugar.
50 ml/2 oz. gin
20 ml/⅔ oz. fresh lemon juice
2 barspoons raspberry syrup
a dash of egg white
sugar syrup, to taste
Add all the ingredients to a shaker filled with ice and shake sharply. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
MIX IT UP
A Royal Clover Club is a variation of the Clover Club that contains an egg yolk instead of egg white. This will slightly alter the texture and the colour to a rich orangey pink. Always make sure to use the best quality organic eggs in cocktails such as these.
