From other users
  • 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. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Use 3:1:1:1 ratio. Homemade raspberry syrup. 1 egg white for 2 drinks works well. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Made with rhubarb syrup (scant 1/2 oz.). And a full egg white which really was too much. — ☆☆☆
  • 3/8 oz raspberry syrup; Substitute 3/4 oz grenadine, omit vermouth for Joy's version — ☆☆☆☆☆

I honestly have never made

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.

I made this both ways

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.



A nice Clover Club can be

A nice Clover Club can be made by muddling 5 or 6 fresh raspberries in 1/2 oz (homemade) grenadine (J. Morgenthaler's recipe with a little extra orange flower water). I use half and half Dolin Blanc and Dry. Strain well and garnish with 4 raspberries on a bamboo pick. I've made them with Hayman's Old Tom, Boodles, and Plymouth Navy Strength gin - all are very good!
