Andrew Whitehead @Liquorary
The Clover Club, via @pdmixeddrinks and @imbibe_and_enjoy: 1 1/2 oz dry gin + 3/4 oz lemon + 1/2 oz raspberry syrup + 1/2 an egg white Classic drink that seemed to show up all over my Instagram feed this spring. I can’t believe I had never tried it before, because this is a fantastic, well balanced drink. It also tastes wonderfully old fashioned; reminds me in a way of the Aviation, of a drink that’s earned its status as a classic. #osbphappyhour #cocktail #cocktails #cocktailrecipes #allthingscocktail #gin #cloverclub #vintageglassware
