Cocktail Wednesday - Sidecar and Clover Club


We started back up with Cocktail Wednesday with the new year.  Had our first night back on January 13th with the side card.  This was my dad's pick.


Recipe from here .. basically.


Ingredients:
  • Brandy - 1 1/2 oz
  • Triple Sec - 3/4 oz
  • Lemon Juice - 3/4 oz
I put the ingredients together in the shaker (not pictured here) with ice, shook for a bit, poured it into the glass. I poured it over ice, but my husband liked it neat better.  (it's actually his go-to drink now).




The next drink (1/20) was the Clover Club.  My YD's dance instructor suggested this as a cocktail to try.

Recipe from here.


Ingredients:
  • 2 oz Gin
  • 1 egg white
  • .5 oz Fresh lemon juice
  • .5 oz raspberry syrup

 

I made the raspberry syrup with some raspberries I had bought for lunch.  I mashed them, put them in a pot with equal part sugar and then cooked it until it boiled, and then a little more.

I put the ingredients above (doubled) in a shaker with ice, and then poured into the glasses.  It was really pretty and tasty too.  Not too sweet.
