Durham Distillery Conniption Gin
The Clover Club Cocktail has a beautiful cotton candy hue and many people say it tastes like raspberry ice cream, but without it being too sweet.
1.5 oz. Conniption American Dry Gin
½ oz. raspberry syrup*
½ oz. fresh lemon juice
½ oz. dry vermouth
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 cup white sugar
1 cup water
Make the Raspberry Syrup- Add raspberries to white sugar and gently press them to allow sugar to begin soaking up the juices. Let sit in sugar 10-20 minutes. Add mixture to a small saucepan along with the water. Stir and bring to a boil. Immediately remove from heat at boil and let sit for 30 minutes. Strain and store in refrigerator for up to 2 months.
For the cocktail- Add all ingredients to shaker and shake without ice for about 15 seconds. This makes it nice and frothy.
Add ice and shake vigorously again.
Fine strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with a few raspberries on a pick.
