Clover Club

Clover Club Cocktail

Named after a private Philadelphia club where it was the drink of choice for the filthy rich of 1882, the Clover Club predates Prohibition and is Philly’s best known contribution to the cocktail canon. Mark Twain once visited the Clover Club and became a great admirer of the signature cocktail and its ameliorative powers. “At first I thought these men (Clover Club members and guests) were fools,” Twain is reported to have said. “But after five hours of sitting here drinking, I've concluded that they are witty...apparently I'm the only man here who feels his liquor.”
