The Clover Club was created at the Philadelphia Club in 1908. It’s named after a club for gentlemen that met at the same location.
History of the drink
The Clover Club cocktail is like a time capsule, taking us back to the glitz and glamour of pre-Prohibition days in the United States. It's named after this legendary men's club in Philadelphia that was founded in 1882 and held court at the swanky Bellevue-Stratford Hotel in Centre City. The Clover Club cocktail was a favourite of the club's members, who were the top dogs of industry at the time. Cocktail aficionado Robert Hess swears by the Clover Club recipe, which has remained virtually unchanged since it was first published way back in 1908. But wait, there's more! J. A. Grohusko's Jack's Manual also features a similar drink called ‘A Clover Leaf’, which is said to be quite the rage in Philly and boasts a soft, delicate orchid hue. Interestingly, earlier cocktail books, like Applegreen's Bar Book, completely missed the ‘Clover Leaf Cocktail’ boat until 1909. The Clover Club cocktail truly is a throwback with a twist!
