The Story Behind The Rosemary Clover Club
The classic Clover Club is a drink that can’t be replaced, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t tinker around with it a little bit. To do that, I’m adding rosemary to the drink to give it an earthy flare. Since ancient times rosemary has been a symbol of friendship, loyalty, and remembrance. So, this ingredient is perfect for Father’s Day this weekend. Instead of serving dad a glass of bourbon why not consider preparing a cocktail with fresh raspberries and rosemary instead?
The aromatic properties introduced into this delicious cocktail through the rosemary are expressed delightfully through the silky egg white froth. The only thing better than the rosemary scented froth on top of this cocktail is the combination of gin, lemon juice, fresh raspberries and raspberry syrup beneath. With these elements coming together, this concoction guarantees to tantalize your senses from the first sip.
