Cocktail of the week: Folie’s Clover Club recipe


The Clover Club dates back to pre-prohibition Philadelphia, when it was created in the gentleman’s club at the Bellevue-Stratford hotel. You could replace the egg white for an equal quantity of pineapple juice; in which, case omit the cane sugar. It’s a simple classic that’s just the thing to celebrate Independence Day.

Serves 1

3 raspberries
50ml gin – we use Tanqueray No Ten
15ml fresh lemon juice
10ml cane syrup
1 egg white (or pineapple juice – see introduction)

Muddle the raspberries in the base of a shaker or toby tin, then add all the ingredients and dry shake to set the egg white. Add ice, shake again and serve.
