Clover Club

This cocktail, on the menu at hotspot Lani Kai in New York City, is everything a good summer cocktail should be — strong, refreshing, and not overly sweet. Created by Clover Club bartender Brad Farran, this perfectly balanced cocktail features Beefeater 24, a gin crafted with 12 different botanicals.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 shiso leaves, plus one for garnish
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ½ ounces Beefeater 24 gin
  • ¾ ounce grapefruit juice
  • ½ ounce dry vermouth
  • ½ ounce lemon juice
  • Ice

Directions

Muddle the shiso leaves in simple syrup then add the remaining ingredients to the shaker. Shake with ice and fine strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a fresh shiso leaf.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
