Clover Club Cocktail

By: The Local Palate
Clover Club Cocktail

Roots of Ruin is the flagship gin by Castle & Key distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky that perfectly balances a complex botanical profile of chamomile, ginger, and rosemary. For this Clover Club cocktail, combine those herbaceous, floral notes with Carpano Bianco, housemade raspberry syrup, egg white, and a touch of lemon for a bright bouquet of flavor.

Makes 1 cocktail

  • 1½ ounces Roots of Ruin
  • ½ ounce Carpano Bianco
  • ½ ounce lemon juice
  • ½ ounce Raspberry Syrup (recipe follows)
  • 1 egg white
  • Raspberry Syrup
  • 6 ounces fresh raspberries (1 clamshell)
  • 6 ounces water
  • 6 ounces sugar

Make the Raspberry Syrup

  1. Combine raspberries and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil at 220 degrees. Immediately lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove raspberries from heat and strain through a mesh strainer, pressing to extract juice. Filter juice through a coffee filter, then add to a clean pot and place over high heat. As juice heats, add sugar; bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until sugar is fully dissolved. Allow to cool.

Put It All Together

Combine all ingredients in a shaker, without ice, and dry shake to emulsify all ingredients. Then add ice and shake. Finally, fine strain into a coupe glass .
