“This Clover Club variation is named after the area of an old textile mill where the restaurant is now located. I always thought it would be a good name for a bar, but since the name of the restaurant was already chosen I figured next best thing would be to name one of our signature cocktails after it.” Samuel Nelis
15 ml (.5 oz) fino sherry
22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh lemon juice
22.5 ml (.75 oz) Blueberry Syrup*
1 egg white
Brandied blueberries, as garnish
Dry-shake, then add ice and shake again. Double-strain into a chilled coupe and add the garnish.
*Blueberry Syrup: Mix 1.8 kg (4 lb) chopped blueberries with 1.6 kg (3.5 lb) sugar and let stand overnight. Pour 1.4 L (1.5 quarts) warm simple syrup into the mixture and shake until the sugar dissolves, then strain.
gaz sez: I sure as heck loves me some blueberries, I does, but it’s the marriage of Beefeater gin and fino sherry that really piqued my interest in this drink. It’s a match made in heaven, methinks! Nicely thought out, Samuel!
