Delightfully refreshing, subtly tart, perfectly sweet, and full of flavor is this classic clover club cocktail. Made with raspberry syrup, dry gin, vermouth, and lemon juice. Then finished with an egg white foamy topping. Makes for a great drink to have on deck for entertaining, date night, and more!



For the raspberry simple syrup

  • 6 ounces (170 grams) fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water

For the clover club cocktail

  • 2 ounces dry gin
  • 1/2 ounce vermouth
  • 1 ounce raspberry syrup, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large Pete and Gerry’s Organic Egg, egg white only
  • extra raspberries and lemon peels, for garnish- optional


For the raspberry simple syrup

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add in the raspberries, sugar, and water. Stir together to combine and allow the mixture to come up to a rolling boil, about 5-7 minutes. Then remove the saucepan from heat to cool down for at least 10 minutes. 
  2. Use a fine mesh sieve to strain the syrup, discarding the raspberry pulp, if desired- set aside. *Note: This recipe makes about a heaping full cup of raspberry simple syrup- you can use for extra clover club cocktails or store in the fridge for up to one week to use as desired.

For the clover club cocktail

  1. For the dry shake: In a cocktail shaker (or large glass jar that can be fitted with a lid), add in the gin, vermouth, raspberry syrup, lemon juice, and egg white. Cover the shaker/glass with lid.
  2. Shake the mixture vigorously for a few seconds (I like to count to ten for good measure).
  3. Add the ice: Add a handful of ice into the shaker/glass, cover, and shake again super vigorously for another few seconds. Taste the mixture and add more syrup and/or alcohol to your desired preference level, then shake the cocktail again to combine.
  4. Strain the cocktail into your vessel of choice, garnish with raspberries/lemon peel, and enjoy!
