The first taste
The first time I ever tried a Clover Club cocktail was a couple years ago at a special blogger event held at The Lynhall in Minneapolis. It was a berry-themed event, and since traditionally clover clubs are made with raspberry syrup, it made sense to serve this delightful drink.
Served in small coupe glasses, I was intrigued by this drink, as I’d never even heard of it before. The vibrant color and the odd foamy head was an instant draw, and I’m glad I gave it a chance!
After that, I made it my mission to serve this cocktail at gatherings, and I’ve played with the recipe too, swapping berries, swapping citrus, and adding a splash of 7UP.

Clover Club cocktail ingredients
The absolute basic clover club consists of:
- dry gin
- raspberry syrup
- fresh lemon juice
- egg whites
Super simple, right?
For this version, we’re using the same ratios, but playing with the ingredients a bit.
- we’re swapping the raspberries for blueberries!
- instead of all lemon juice, we’re using just a single squeeze and replacing the rest with 7UP
You can do a lot with 7UP, so I always pick up a pack when I’m at Target. It’s easy, it’s fun, it’s flavorful, like my mango sheet cake!
Can you make a Clover Club cocktail without egg whites?
If you did, it wouldn’t be a Clover Club!
The egg white is simply an emulsifier, meaning, it creates the heady foam on top of the cocktail. The egg white lends no flavor to the drink at all.
To get the best foam, be sure to use the freshest eggs possible. I’ve tried with both fresh eggs and liquid egg whites, and I definitely had a better result with fresh eggs.
How to make a Clover Club cocktail
It’s super easy!
- make the blueberry syrup, which only takes about 5-10 minutes by bringing a pot of blueberries and water to a low boil, then strain.
- add the gin, syrup, lemon juice, 7UP, and egg white to a cocktail shaker with no ice and give it a dry shake.
- add some ice and then shake it again.
- strain into a coupe glass and enjoy!
Boom! Cocktail magic!
