Test Kitchen Notes

Created in the late 1800s to be the signature drink of a group of wealthy gentlemen who frequented Philadelphia’s Bellevue-Stratford Hotel, the Clover Club clearly has staying power. The original was made with gin, lemon juice, raspberry (or grenadine) syrup, and egg white—this rosy cocktail has inspired countless spin-offs, including a bar in Brooklyn of the same name. Our booze-free version swaps in Seedlip’s deliciously fresh Garden 108, a non-alcoholic spirit that gets its flavor from peas, rosemary, thyme, and spearmint. Homemade raspberry syrup and lemon juice add brightness to this non-alcoholic cocktail, while the frothy egg white gives it a velvety body. Serve in a chilled coupe or martini glass to enjoy an old-time sipper with a new-school twist.
