I’m not usually into Valentines Day, its overrated in my opinion. But, it is a pandemic and I'll take any excuse to do something different. So, I thought I would do a post… This hot pink, dare I say magenta, jump-suit is by Adam LIppes, and it’s got pockets! The shoes are Sam Edelman from about a thousand years ago, and the earrings are Elizabeth Cole. Will I be wearing this on valentines day?…no, will I wish I was?…. Also no. Would I wear this at any other time of year if I had somewhere fancy to be? You bet! Ok, maybe...
The Clover Club is the most classic of classic cocktails. It's pretty, it's tasty, It checks all the boxes. I never make them at home because who has raspberry syrup just hanging around? Not this bitch, buuuuut, it turns out you can substitute for grenadine! I actually added a touch of St. Germain, because grenadine can be a bit flat, and I highly recommend it.
2 oz. Gin
3/4 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. Grenadine (or use raspberry syrup and up it to 3/4 oz. without the st. germaine)
1/2 oz. st. Germaine
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until foamy and chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass and enjoy!
