Key Flavours: Fruity raspberries balanced with complex botanicals and refreshing citrus.
Background: Created at Philadelphia’s eponymous Clover Club - a gentleman’s club located in the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel on the corner of Broad Street and Walnut Street. While some consider it a hard cocktail to get right - and argue over the inclusion of sweet or dry vermouth (or none at all) - it’s definitely worth persevering with. Try using Bramley & Gage Raspberry Liqueur to make things a whole lot quicker – I really does captures the fresh raspberry taste of summer, and you can always add what’s left in the bottle to your next glass of prosecco!
