My Valen’Thyme Clover Club is the perfect cocktail for Valentine’s Day: Slightly pink, frothy and delicious! Traditionally made with gin my version incorporates fresh thyme and is shaken up with half gin and half vodka — a great introduction to botanicals for the gin shy cocktailer.
So toast your sweetie with my classic twist on this classic cocktail.
Valen’Thyme Clover Club
Makes 1 cocktail
6 fresh raspberries
1 sprig fresh thyme
3/4 oz vodka
3/4 oz gin
3/4 oz Housemade Honey Syrup (see recipe)
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1 organic egg white
Garnish: fresh raspberry, fresh thyme sprig
Drop the raspberries into a cocktail shaker, bend and drop in the fresh thyme. Measure in the vodka, gin, Honey Syrup, lemon juice and egg white. Fill shaker with ice, cap and POWER shake – enough so the egg white becomes frothy and the raspberries are broken up. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with raspberry skewered on a fresh thyme sprig.
*Housemade Honey Syrup
Mix together 1/2 cup honey with 1/3 cup hot water. Mix to combine and store refrigerated.
