the PDT recipe: 2oz Plymouth Gin, 3/4oz lemon juice, 1/2oz simple syrup, 1 bsp Bonne Mamman raspberry preserves, and 1 egg white. Dry shake, shake w/ ice, and strain into a chilled egg coupe

Various different versions of this recipe use grenadine or raspberry syrup in place of the raspberries, and/or dry vermouth. For example, see Julie Reiner's spec from Clover Club in NY - 1.5 Gin, 1/2 dry vermouth, 1/2oz raspberry syrup, 1/2oz lemon juice.

Does anyone have an issue if I fix this drink to this: http://cold-glass.com/2013/02/19/the-clover-club-cocktail/ - it's 1.5/.75/.75/.25. I can also add a note that it was originally 1:1:1:1 which is way too sweet for modern palates.

Thanks,

Zachary

I made this both ways tonight, and it definitely needs the dry vermouth. I also like the 6:3:3:1 ratio. Interestingly, the raspberry + lemon makes pink grapefruit in the same way the Jasmine does with Campari + lemon.

Thanks,

Zachary

I honestly have never made the version with dry vermouth before, but from the ratios that Cold Glass gives, it sounds fantastic. No objections from me.

Haven't tried the raspberry version. I've used 1.5 oz gin, 0.5 oz homemade grenadine, 0.75 oz lemon, and egg white. (4 stars)
