Cocktailing 101: The Clover Club

Posted by: on Jan 11, 2011 | No Comments

It’s time yet again for another guest post over at Another Freaking Cooking Blog! Thanks, KM! This time the recipe involves booze, and it is something.

I found this recipe in the book Vintage Cocktails (a pretty fantastic Christmas present), and though it does require a bit more elbow grease than your standard drink, it is well worth the effort. It is delicious, and will make you feel fancy and important.

Wikipedia has this to say of the Clover Club:

“… a drink that pre-dates Prohibition, and is named for the Philadelphia men’s club of the same name. It has a long history dating back to at least 1911, and was enjoyed by the captains of industry who were members of the famous club. In its heyday, the drink was described as being… a ‘distinguished patron of the oak-paneled lounge.'”

Think about it – that could be you sitting in an oak-paneled lounge, rubbing elbows with the captains of industry! Jump over to AFCB to get the recipe.
