Clover Leaf Cocktail a.k.a. Clover Club Cocktail

Clover Leaf Cocktail.

If you look through the books, there is the Clover Club Cocktail on the one hand and the Clover Leaf Cocktail on the other. At first glance, it seems that the Clover Leaf Cocktail is nothing more than a Clover Club Cocktail with mint. We will check whether this is so – and let it be spoiled right away: they are identical. This also explains why we do not look at the two separately in the following, but in chronological order.


70 ml Finsbury 47 Gin
15 ml lemon juice
15ml lime juice
20 ml D’Arbo raspberry syrup
1 egg white (20 ml)
6 mint leaves
Garnish: lemon zest

Preparation: Shaken with mint, then shaken again in the “Dry Shake” without ice. Pour into the glass and spritz with a lemon zest.

Alternatively and currently preferred by us:

60 ml Finsbury 47 Gin
15 ml lemon juice
15ml lime juice
20 mlFreimeister Himbeeree
2,5-3,75 ml sugar syrup (2:1)

1 egg white (20 ml)
6 mint leaves
Garnish: lemon zest

The first recipes

The first recipe for a Clover Leaf Cocktail in a bar book appeared in Jacob Abraham Grohusko’s “Jack’s Manual” in 1908. The Clover Club Cocktail, which is said to differ from a Clover Leaf Cocktail only in that it is not garnished with mint, was published in 1910 in “101 Drinks and How to Mix Them”.

What information can be found in other writings published in the early 20th century? To understand the history of both the Clover Club Cocktail and the Clover Leaf Cocktail, we need to look into this.

New York Herald. 8. July 1908, page 13.
New York Herald. 8. July 1908, page 13. [8]

On 8 July 1908, the New York Herald reported: “A party of Philadelphians introduced a new appetizer at the Plaza last evening called a clover leaf cocktail. It is said to be popular in the city of brotherly love. Certainly it is decorative, for it has a soft orchid color, with a rim of white, and is served in glasses with round bowls. The drink is made of Gordon gin, raspberry syrup, white of an egg and a bit of mint, shaken well with ice and drained off.[8]

The Plaza was a world-renowned luxury hotel opened in 1907, [23] and the City of Brotherly Love refers to Philadelphia. [24]

The Evening World. 28. January 1909, page 5.
The Evening World. 28. January 1909, page 5. [5]

Six months later, on 28 January 1909, the Evening World reported: “NEW COCKTAIL IN TOWN MAKES HIT AT DEBUT. It’s the “Clover Leaf,” and Has White of Egg in its Make-Up, per Plaza Mixologist – The “Clover Leaf” cocktail is the latest invention of those two minister to the devotees of the Demon Rum. It was invented by the boss bartender of the Plaza Hotel and became so popular at once with his patrons, especially girls of the younger set, that bartenders of all the hotels around about have been pestering the Plaza telephone switchboard for the formula. This is the concoction: A teaspoonful of syrup of grenadine (enough to tinge the whole drink a delicate clover color and sweeten it). The white of one egg. A jigger of gin. The whole is shaken with ice in a cocktail shaker and served in a cylindrical glass, the rim of which has been dampened and frosted with powdered sugar. The restaurant drink is a sweet, frothy cocktail of most refreshing and innocent appearance and of great latent energy. Wholesome dealers in eggs have been marveling for several days at the sudden increase in the quantity ordered by the upper Fifth avenue hotels.[5]

This newspaper article contradicts the previous one. While it was first said that the Clover Leaf cocktail originated in Philadelphia and was then popularised in the Plaza Hotel, it is now said to be an invention from the Plaza Hotel. The “invention” is nothing more than a modification of the original recipe. Originally a mixture of gin, raspberry syrup, egg white and mint, all shaken well together, it is now a mixture of gin, grenadine, egg white, shaken and served in a glass with a crusta rim.

New York Herald, 29. April 1909, page 10.
New York Herald, 29. April 1909, page 10. [7]

Three months later, on 29 April 1909, the New York Herald reported: “SUBJECT OF DRINKS COMES UP AGAIN. “Soul Kiss Cordial,” a New Concoction, and the Clover Club Cocktail Good for Summer. … A beverage, not new but appropriate for warm days, ist he “Clover Club cocktail.” It is mild and refreshing. The recipe came from Philadelphia. The ingredients are the white of an egg, one-half a lemon, one-half a lime, a “jigger” of Plymouth gin, a teaspoonful of sugar and a pony of grenadine. These are frapped well and then there is “a dash of the syphon on top to make the egg rise,” as the bartender expressed it in technical terms, and a decoration of a sprig of mint.[7]

Here, both previous specifications are merged and expanded. The Clover Club cocktail comes from Philadelphia, but you use grenadine instead of raspberry syrup and also add some soda.

The Sun. 9. July 1910. page 7.
The Sun. 9. July 1910, page 7. [9]

On 9 July 1910, an article in the Sun says- ““It is odd,” continued Mr. Lattard, “how old drinks have begun to come back into favor again. The mint julip, which seemed for a long time lost to New York, is in demand of late, and there are frequent calls for tom and jerries. The clover leaf cocktail, which John W. Gates invented, a comparatively new drink, has already gained a wide popularity.[9]

Finally we learn who the Clover Leaf Cocktail is supposed to be from. Who could this John W. Gates be? A bartender? We do not think so. The person mentioned is probably John Warne Gates. He was an American industrialist and gambler. [10] The San Francisco Call mentions in 1903 that John W. Gates, together with Edwin Hawley, had taken complete control of the Clover Leaf. [11] The Clover Leaf was commonly referred to as the Toledo, St. Louis and Western Railroad. [12] It seems to be assumed that John W. Gates, as owner of the Clover Leaf railway, must also have invented the cocktail of the same name. However, this is highly unlikely. But at least we now know where the drink perhaps got its name.

Albert Stevens Crokett: Old Waldorf Bar Days. 1931, page 127.
Albert Stevens Crokett: Old Waldorf Bar Days. 1931, page 127. [22-127]

We consider the derivation that the drink was named after the Philadelphia-based Clover Club [20] to be unlikely, as there is no contemporary evidence for this, even though Albert Stevens Crocket writes in 1931 in his book “Old Waldorf Bar Days”: “A Philadelphia importation, originated, it is said, in the bar of the old Bellevue-Stratford, where the Clover Club, composed of literary, legal, financial and business lights of the Quaker City, often dined and wined, and wined again.[22-127]

But even if it were, ‘Clover Leaf Cocktail’ is – if contemporary newspaper articles are to be believed – the older designation, and since the two must – as will be shown – be regarded as identical, this older designation should be chosen.

Nevertheless, we may have to revise this analysis. David Wondrich writes in the Oxford Companion that the New York Press, in an article entitled “How to Mix Your Own Drinks” on 21 June 1901, mentions a Clover Club cocktail and also Michael Killackey from the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. However, it is not clear whether a recipe was also given there, and what it was. [21-159] We read the New York Press of 21 June 1901 but could not find the article in it. [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] It must be an error in the Oxford Companion. Our request therefore: Anyone who knows the exact source, please contact us. Until clarification, we have to ignore the information from the Oxford Companion, because it does not prove that there are older sources than the newspaper articles we found.

The Argonaut, 13. May 1911, page 309.
The Argonaut, 13. May 1911, page 309. [14-309]

1911 is written in the Argonaut: “A favorite drink in New York at the present moment is called the Clover Club cocktail. It comes, as do many good things, from Philadelphia. The Clover Club cocktail is popular with the ladies, for it is not as treacherous as a Bronx, which, up to this time, has been the favorite, or a Dry Martini, which always holds its own. It is pretty to look at, being of a pale pink color with a little white froth on the top, and with a bit of green for decoration rather than the familiar maraschino cherry. The Clover Club cocktail has the advantage, if advantage it be, over other cocktails, that it does not come ready mixed. It must be mixed on the premises, for there is a dash of egg in it, and a bottled egg would never do for the fastidious.[14-309]

In this newspaper article, confusingly, a cherry has been added as decoration.

The Washington Herald. 12. January 1911, page 6.
The Washington Herald. 12. January 1911, page 6. [1]

In 1911, an advertisement was placed in the Washington Herald stating that one could purchase all the ingredients to make a Clover Club cocktail at home from the To-Kalon Wine Company. [1] This shows us that the Clover Club cocktail must have been well known and popular.

The Smart Set. A Magazine of Cleverness. 1912, page 147.
The Smart Set. A Magazine of Cleverness. 1912, page 147. [15-147]

In 1912, a very interesting reference appears in a magazine, which we would not have expected from such an early year. There one reads: “a Clover Club cocktail tanged with vodka” [15-147]

Does this mean that the Clover Club cocktail was made with vodka? One would have thought that vodka would have been used only with the success story of the Moscow Mule, but not already in 1912.

Evening Star. 24. November 1912, page 2.
Evening Star. 24. November 1912, page 2. [6]

In 1912, the Clover Club cocktail must have been one of the few mixed drinks marketed in bottles. In an Evening Star advertisement it is highlighted alongside Martini, Manhattan and Bronx. [6] How the problem of egg whites was solved is not explained to us. Perhaps it was simply left out, or a different recipe was sold as a Clover Club cocktail?

The Washington Herald. 15. July 1912, page 4.
The Washington Herald. 15. July 1912, page 4. [2]

In 1912, the New York World takes a stand on the question of whether eggs belong in a cocktail. “WHAT IS A COCKTAIL? Not a Food Product, but a Beverage and Barroom Exotic. From the New York World. … The Westminster Gazette is right. The New York World’s official bartender ought to go up the line and “get hep” to the Clover Club cocktail, one of whose grateful ingredients is the white of an egg. It is more in pity than in contempt that we refer our neighbor to a decoction which has so far escaped from its comprehensive ken of things worth while.” Even our restricted ken had embraced both the white of egg in the Clover Club compound and the grenadine sirup which imparts to it is pastel pink hue. But at least the egg is not sizzled, and when, anyway, did this concoction deserve the name of cocktail? It is a barroom exotic merely, one of the hybrid l’art nouveau products of the modern hotel café which accord with the gilt furniture and French cusine, but are foreign to the true principies of “American drinks.” The Clover Club “cocktail” bears as little resemblance to a real cocktail as the New York mint julep, with its macedoine of assorted fruits, does to the julep of Virginian ancestry. No doubt there are men who will continue to take eggs in their “appetizers” as they do in their Welsh rarebits [, which is melted cheese with spices and herbs placed hot over a slice of toasted bread,[3] ]. But a cocktail is not a food product. It is a beverage, and true connoisseurs will always regard it as such even at the risk of being called reactionaries.[2]

The Sun. 15. February 1914, page 10.
The Sun. 15. February 1914, page 10. [16]

A curiosity from 1914 must be mentioned. The New York Sun writes about artists who went to a ball dressed up like different drinks or even like “the morning after the night before”. The Clover Club cocktail was also represented:” What was Miss Katherine Grey, all aglow in cerisse fluffs and furbelows and feathers was, it is scarcely necessary to explain, a Clover Club cocktail.[16]

The Knickerbocker Press. 1. April 1914, page 7.
The Knickerbocker Press. 1. April 1914, page 7. [13]

In 1914, the Knickerbocker Press gives the recipe for a Clover Club cocktail: “CLOVER CLUB COCKTAIL – Take one-half of a small glass of gin, one glass grenadine, and one of rich milk or cream, the white of one egg well beaten, using only half of it after it is beaten. Put cracked ice, not very fine, in the mixer; add grenadine, then gin, then milk, mixing thoroughly. Put in the beaten white of egg, shake very hard and serve immediately. This makes enough for four.[13]This is an interesting twist, because there has been no mention of cream or fat milk so far. And citrus juice is completely missing.

The Daily Ardmoreite. 16. October 1917, page 6.
The Daily Ardmoreite. 16. October 1917, page 6. [17]

In 1917, in the Daily Ardmoreite from Oklahoma, the Clover Club cocktail is still a novelty, and it’s about someone wanting to send a transatlantic cable message to London while the US is at war with the German Reich, because they asked for the recipe: “… yesterday I got a wire saying that Lady Somebody had expressed a yearning to learn the ingredients of the latest and New Yorkiest cocktail, the Colver Club -” “The Clover Club isn’t the latest cocktail, and it isn’t New Yorky,” objected one of the company. “It’s a Philaelphia drink.” “Well, anyway,” persisted Pruyn, “Tomlinson says that his noble lady wanted the ingredients. I have them. This morning I tried to send the recipe by cable. The censor flung it back at me without two glances.” “Why?” was asked. “I don’t know.” snarled Pruyn. “He just glared at me and said, ‘Nothing doing.’ or words to that effect. I dont know whether he’s crazy or whether I am.” “Let’s see your dispatch,” suggested a diner, and, receiving it forthwith, he read the following: “Gin. White of egg. Sprig mint Grenadine. – Pruyn.” Oh, you unspeakable,” the chorus was by no means veiled. “Spy! Teuton!” “You mean – ?” Pruyn paused. “Yes, we mean,” came the stern judicial reply, “that the censor caught you in the act of sending code.”[17]

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle. 14. March 1920, page 19.
The Brooklyn Daily Eagle. 14. March 1920, page 19. [4]

A newspaper report from 1920 confirms the fame of the Clover Club cocktail. “There are probably as many bars in Buenos Aires in proportion to population as there were in New York in pre-prohibition days. In these bars, thirsty Americans just arrived from the United States find similar drinks. The “Manhattan,” “Bronx” and “Clover Club” cocktails are as well known by the same names as in New York. The “Martini,” however, is here called a “San Martin,” which is the name of one of the patriots of Argentine history.[4]

The different variations

There are numerous recipes for the Clover Club and the Clover Leaf. How do they differ? To answer this question, one ideally has to look at the recipes up to the beginning of Prohibition, i.e. from the years 1908 to 1919. As we will show, there are no differences between the Clover Club cocktail and the Clover Leaf cocktail, so we will first look at them both together. This shows that they have in common the use of gin, egg white, and either raspberry or grenadine. It also shows that there are five different variations:

  1. Basic formula 1: Gin & egg white & raspberry or grenadine syrup
  2. Basic formula 2: Gin & egg white & raspberry or grenadine syrup & citrus juice (lemon or lime)
  3. Basic formula 3: Gin & egg white & raspberry or grenadine syrup & vermouth
  4. Basic 4: Gin & egg white & raspberry or grenadine syrup & citrus juice & vermouth
  5. Other

Optionally, mint is also used in all variants.

The variant “Other” includes all variants that do not contain all the ingredients of the first variant, namely gin, egg white and raspberry or grenadine, or represent something fundamentally different. However, these are quite rare cases that should be excluded.

Variants of Clover Leaf Cocktail / Clover Club Cocktail.
Variants of Clover Leaf Cocktail / Clover Club Cocktail.

In addition to the ingredients mentioned, other ingredients are added in some recipes up to 1999. These can be exemplary: Abricotine, Angostura Bitters, Strawberry Brandy, Strawberries, Creme de Cacao, Curaçao, Maraschino, Maraschino Cherry, Mint Liqueur instead of fresh mint, Nutmeg, Orange Bitters, Orange Juice, Peychaud’s Bitters, Peach Syrup, Cream, Vanilla, Sugar. But let us be quite clear: these additives belong neither in an original Clover Club Cocktail nor in a Clover Leaf Cocktail.

The mint

This said in advance, it is now worth taking a more detailed look at the individual variants. Let’s start with the mint. It is commonly said that the Clover Leaf Cocktail differs from the Clover Club Cocktail in that it is garnished with mint leaves. However, this statement cannot be accepted.

Mint in a Clover Club Cocktail.
Mint in a Clover Club Cocktail.

Initially, mint is always included in the preparation of a Clover Club cocktail. As can be seen from the diagram, this changed in the following years. From 1960 onwards, mint was no longer used at all.

Mint in a Clover Leaf Cocktail.
Mint in a Clover Leaf Cocktail.

Anyone who thinks that a Clover Leaf cocktail was always made with mint is equally mistaken, as the diagram proves. With regard to the question of whether mint should be shaken or decorated, the picture is inconsistent. However, one can also say here: from 1960 onwards, mint was always used in the preparation of a Clover Leaf.

What can be deduced from this? As a glance at the historical recipes shows, originally the Clover Club Cocktail and the Clover Leaf Cocktail can be regarded as identical. For both, mint was originally shaken in and also decorated with mint. A clear definition that a Clover Club Cocktail should be prepared without mint and a Clover Leaf Cocktail with mint only seems to have been finally established from 1960 onwards.

However, one should ask why a mint decoration should turn a Clover Club Cocktail into a Clover Leaf Cocktail. What added value does this offer? From our point of view, actually none, because the full potential of the recipe is only realised by shaking it along. So if you want to separate Clover Club Cocktail and Clover Leaf Cocktail in the modern sense, you should at least shake the mint with it.

But then the other question arises: what added value would a Clover Club cocktail made of gin, citrus juice, raspberry syrup and egg white have compared to, for example, a Gin Daisy as proposed by Jacques Straub in 1913; this Gin Daisy is practically identical but does without the egg white. And it tastes much better without the egg white.

The realisation that Clover Club Cocktail and Clover Leaf Cocktail were originally the same makes it easier for us to consider the different variants. Indeed, one can equate them with the same basic ingredients, regardless of whether they contain mint or not, regardless of whether they were called Clover Leaf Cocktail or Clover Club Cocktail.

For the sake of interest, a diagram is given that shows the use of mint for both names together:

Mint in Clover Club Cocktail & Clover Leaf Cocktail.
Mint in Clover Club Cocktail & Clover Leaf Cocktail.

Grenadine or raspberry?

What about the question of whether to use raspberry or grenadine?

Clover Leaf Cocktail & Clover Club Cocktail: raspberry or grenadine?
Clover Leaf Cocktail & Clover Club Cocktail: raspberry or grenadine?

One can see that initially raspberries or raspberry syrup were used in about 40 percent of the cases. With the beginning of prohibition, it became less and less, until raspberry finally almost disappeared. In our opinion, however, this is not due to the taste superiority of grenadine. Raspberry and mint are a perfect combination. [18] [19]

This is why limes are to be preferred to lemons; this was also the view of Robert Vermeire in 1922: “When no limes are to hand, lemons are usually used, and Grenadine is often substituted for Raspberry Syrup.

Unfortunately, we also read that grenadine was often used, for example Harry McElhone reported in 1933: “In London for some time it has been the custom to serve Grenadine instead of Raspberry.

One explanation for why grenadine was used in London is provided by Robert Vermeire. In 1938 he reported: “Grenadine is generally used for this cocktail, as it was introduced by me in London, at the R. A. C. (Royal Automobile Club) and raspberry syrup was hardly known there at the time and very difficult to obtain.

– “La grenadine est généralement employée pour ce cocktail, car celui-ci a été introduit par moi, à Londres, au R. A. C. (Royal Automobile Club) en 1915 et à cette époque le sirop de framboises y était à peine connu et très difficile à obtenir.

Grenadine was used because raspberry syrup was difficult to obtain. Stanley Clisby Arthur also gives preference to raspberry, writing in 1938: “Some of the how-to-mix’em-experts use grenadine sirup instead of the raspberry. Upon experiment it will be found that red raspberry not only gives a prettier pink color but imparts a flavor grenadine cannot match.

Lemon or lime

As already mentioned, Robert Vermeire wrote that you should only use lemons if there are no limes to hand. He is right. Lime should be preferred, because raspberry goes perfectly not only with mint but also with lime. [18] [19]

Crusta?

Occasionally we read that the guest glass should have a crustar rim. However, this is very rarely recommended and we can consider it as something not belonging.

The four variants – Is there an evolution?

Let us now return to the different variants:

Variants of Clover Leaf Cocktail / Clover Club Cocktail.
Variants of Clover Leaf Cocktail / Clover Club Cocktail.

The oldest variant is the one made only with gin, egg white, raspberry syrup and mint. On 8 January 1908, the New York Herald reported that this mixture, called the Clover Leaf Cocktail, had been popularised by Philadelphians at the Plaza Hotel. [8] However, it fell into oblivion quite quickly. During Prohibition, it was still sometimes mentioned, but then nothing more was heard of it.

However, shortly after the publication of the oldest variant, the supplementary addition of citrus juice was preferred. This method of preparation quickly became popular and established itself as the standard.

At about the same time, the idea of adding vermouth to the basic mixture came up, but this version quickly disappeared from the books.

Why might the original recipe have been adapted?

On 28 January 1909, the Evening World reported that the Clover Leaf cocktail was the latest invention of the head bartender of the Plaza Hotel. The whole town was crazy about it and it was made with grenadine, egg white and gin and served in a glass with crustarand. [5] Mint is not mentioned, and raspberry syrup has given way to grenadine. Perhaps this change was the “invention” of the head bartender? But perhaps the author of those lines has misunderstood something.

On 29 April, the New York Herald reported that the Clover Club Cocktail, a mixture of gin, egg white, grenadine and the juice of half a lemon, decorated with mint, is good for summer. [7] According to the article, the recipe originates from Philadelphia, so that it cannot be claimed that the Clover Club Cocktail was created in New York from the Clover Leaf Cocktail by adding lemon juice.

Important from our point of view, however, is the reference to summer. The drink should certainly be something refreshing, and this perhaps explains why either citrus juice or vermouth was added in the second stage of development. The citrus juice was supposed to make the drink more refreshing. The vermouth reduced the alcohol content and added new flavours.

Finally, in 1912, the first recipe is published in which both lemon juice and vermouth are added. This mixture can thus be considered the third evolutionary stage of the drink. It was quite popular during Prohibition, but then lost popularity.

What can be deduced from this?

  1. The oldest recipe consists of gin, egg white, raspberry syrup and shaken mint.
  2. Citrus juice began to be added. This variation quickly became popular and can be considered the standard variation throughout the ages. We recommend using raspberry syrup and lime juice, plus lemon juice.
  3. The two variants that use only vermouth or vermouth in combination with citrus juice have never been as popular as the pure citrus variant. Whether to use lemon juice or grenadine here should be decided according to how the combination with gin and vermouth results in the more coherent aroma.

Our recipe

We interpret the Clover Leaf Cocktail – we would prefer this name and discard “Clover Club Cocktail” – as a sour in which the necessary sweetening is achieved by raspberry syrup. Shaken mint leaves and the egg white round off the mixture.

We are very grateful to Mario Kappes for sharing his knowledge about the Clover Club Cocktail with us. He told us something very important, and since we don’t want to adorn ourselves with other people’s feathers, we’ll quote him: “In the end, the dry shake is important here to get the nice consistency and, above all, you have to squirt a large lemon zest onto the foam. Otherwise the drink smells very musty after a few minutes. As with any sour, the balance is extremely important. The best recipe won’t help. So: always balance the lemon and raspberry syrup first![22]

– “Am Ende ist hier der dry Shake wichtig um die schöne Konsistenz zu bekommen und vor allen Dingen muss man eine große Zitronenzeste auf den Schaum abspritzen. Der Drink riecht sonst nach wenigen Minuten sehr muffig. Wie bei jedem Sour ist hier die Balance extrem wichtig. Da nützt das beste Rezept nichts. Also: immer erst Zitrone und Himbeersirup in Balance bringen![22]

When asked if he had ever tried lime juice, he replied: “I prefer lemon in the Clover Club. Limes and raspberry syrup together often have a slightly musty undertone with the limes we have available here in Germany. The lemon adds a fresh top. Especially when using egg whites.[22]

– “Ich mag Zitrone im Clover Club lieber. Limetten und Himbeersirup haben bei den Limetten, die wir hier in Deutschland zur Verfügung haben, zusammen oft einen leicht muffigen Unterton. Die Zitrone setzt eine frische Spitze. Gerade auch bei der Verwendung von Eiweiß.[22]

And here, too, we have to agree with Mario in principle. It tastes worse with the limes available here than with lemons. That’s a pity, because you have to do without the lime flavour altogether. We have found that we prefer a mixture of equal parts lime and lemon juice. On the one hand, you get lime flavours, on the other hand, the lemon juice dispels the musty undertone of the lime. We would also like to point out that shaken mint leaves make a significant difference. Anyone who has tried it once knows what we are talking about. Six leaves should be enough, because the mint should not be too dominant.

Historical recipes

1908 Jacob Abraham Grohusko: Jack’s Manual. Seite 14. Clover Leaf.

In genuine old fashioned
American hot weather nothing
seems to tickle the palate like
a good American drink, and
the kind selected generally in-
dicates the characteristics of
the person drinking. In win-
ter a man will take almost any-
thing that happens to be the
fad for the moment, whether
highly flavored or not, but in
summer the demand is for
something that will quench the
thirst, whether beer, lemonade
or gin rickey or some other
beverage. The Clover Leaf
is said to be popular in
the city of brotherly love.
Certainly it is decorative, for
it has a soft orchid color, with
a rim of white.
Drink is made of:
1/2 teaspoonful of sugar
100% Gordon gin
10% raspberry syrup
White of an egg
1 sprig of mint.
Fill glass with cracked ice,
shake well, strain in cham-
pagne glass and serve.

Shake well, strain into a cocktail
glass, put a sprig of mint on top, and
serve.

1916 Jacob Abraham Grohusko. Jack’s Manual. Seite 106. Clover Leaf.

In genuine old fashioned American hot weather nothing
seems to tickle the palate like a good American drink, and
the kind selected generally indicates the characteristic of
the person drinking. In winter a man will take almost any-
thing that happens to be the fad for the moment, whether
highly flavored or not, but in summer the demand is for
something that will quench the thirst, whether beer, lemo-
nade or gin rickey or some other beverage. The Clover
Leaf is said to be popular in the city of brotherly love.
Certainly it is decorative, for it has a soft orchid color, with
a rim of white.
Drink is made of:
100% Gordon Dry Gin
10 dashes Grenadine
White of an egg
1 sprig of mint.
Fill glass with cracked ice, shake well, strain in cham-
pagne glass and serve.

In genuine old-fashioned American hot weather nothing
seems to tickle the palate like a good American drink, and the
kind selected generally indicates the characteristic of the person
drinking. In winter a man will take almost anything that hap-
pens to be the fad for the moment, whether highly flavored or
not, but in summer the demand is for something that will
quench the thirst, whether beer, lemonade, gin rickey, or some
other beverage. The Clover Leaf is certainly decorative; it has
a soft orchid color, with a rim of white. Drink is made of:-
100% dry gin
10 dashes grenadine
White of one egg
1 sprig of mint
Fill glass with cracked ice, shake well, strain into champagne
glass, and serve.

Une cuillerée à café de sirop de fram-
boises ou de grenadine.
1/2 gin
1/2 vermouth français.
Bien frapper et passer dans un verre à
vin.

N. B. — La grenadine est généralement
employée pour ce cocktail, car celui-ci a été
introduit par moi, à Londres, au R. A . C.
(Royal Automobile Club) en 1915 et à cette
époque le sirop de framboises y était à peine
connu et très difficile à obtenir.
Royal Clover Club est un clover club avec
le jaune au lieu du blanc d’œuf.
Clover Leaf est un clover club mélangé avec
quelques feuilles de menthe fraîche et
décoré d’une feuille de menthe fraîche.

1938 Stanley Clisby Arthur: Famous New Orleans Drinks. Seite 57. Clover Club.

1 jigger diy gin
1/2 lime — juice only
1 pony raspberry sirup
1 white of egg
1 dash Peychaud bitters.
Pour the ingredients into the shaker in order given. Drop in the
lumps of ice. Set yourself for a good shaking, for this is a cock-
tail that must be well frapped To give chic to the final result,
decorate your cocktail glasses with sprigs of mint after straining
into them the delightful liquid from your shaker.
Some of the how-to-mix’em-experts use grenadine sirup
instead of the raspberry. Upon experiment it will be
found that red raspberry not only gives a prettier pink
color but imparts a flavor grenadine cannot match. As it
has the white of an egg in it, this cocktail must be well
shaken.
Why was it named a clover cocktail? Well, you have
us there. Possibly it’s because the lucky recipient, after
tossing it off (or should this drink be tossed?) will con-
cede that the finding of a four-leaf clover is not so lucky
as finding this cocktail.
We have always admired the added ummph the dash
of Peychaud bitters gives this deservedly popular concoc-
tion.

1939 Charles Browne: The Gun Club Drink Book. Seite 85. Clover Club Cocktail.

(From The Gun Club Cook Book) A clover club
cocktail is a Philadelphia concoction, maybe one of
the jokes indulged in at the Clover Club. It’s an
awful mixture. One jigger gin, juice 1/2 lemon, white
one egg, one teaspoonful pulverized sugar, two tea-
spoonfuls raspberry or grenadine syrup. This will
make three cocktails if there be found three people
who want them.

About

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.

  1. Fernando Castellon

    Hello,

    Great article! Thank you for sharing your work and researches.

    The recipes found in Boothby’s 1908 editions, should interest you.

    Best,
    Fernando

    • Hi Fernando,
      thanks for letting me know. I have updated the recipe list. It’s in the 1912 edition; that’s the one that has an appendix entitled: “Some new-up-to-now seductive American cocktails”. This edition can easily be mixed up with the 1908 one, because on the title it also says “1908”.
      Cheerio,
      Armin
