Clover's Club with Raspberry Shrub
America entered a gilded age, an era of robber barons, named so by Mark Twain in the 1870s. At the same time, a small club popped up in Philadelphia from a one time informal dinner to a regular monthly event. From being called The Thursday club to Clovers Club, the club location kept hopping between hotels before finally landing on the affluent and extravagant, Bellevue-Stratford. The owner and hotelier of Bellevue-Stratford, George C. Boldt, paid extreme attention to the needs of the wealthy which eventually landed him a gig in New York’s most revered hotels, especially in the world of culinary, Waldorf-Astoria
The club now had senators, judges, journalists, then sitting president and Mark Twain himself. With no idea of who came up with the recipe first, the frenzy for this cocktail amongst the cloverites travelled to New York with Boldt and became one of the classics.
A perfect pour for not just gin lovers, but also for novice in the world of cocktails.
This forgotten classic is whole bodied gin sour. In our rendition, we balanced the creaminess from the egg white with complex and flavour packed Raspberry, ginger and Orange shrub.
