Clover Club Cocktail Recipe

This traditional Red cocktail was first introduced in 1900. The Clover Club is made from beefeater gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and raspberry puree. It is served in a chilled cocktail glass or champagne coupe. A drink called the White Lady was first created at the Bellevue-Stratford in Philadelphia. The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book provides the recipe for the drink. At the end of the 1800s, it was a favorite hangout for literary, legal, financial, and business lights of the Quaker City.

Egg whites are another key ingredient in this drink. They add a lovely foam to the drink for a nice finishing touch. It doesn’t matter what type of gin you’re sipping in the Clover Club. This will pair well with a traditional London dry gin or Plymouth Gin, which has a hint of fruitiness and a fuller body. Lemon juice is a must in this recipe.


  • You will get plenty of juice from a single lemon, about 1 3/4 ounces, so it should make enough for a couple of drinks.
  • If your egg looks dry, you may use it to mix. Make sure it’s fresh by placing it in a glass of water. When it sinks, this means that the water is fresh and good to drink.
  • If you’re making a limited number of cocktails, just muddle fresh raspberries with equal amount of sugar syrup.
