I had a cocktail similar to this one for the first time at one of our favorite bars in Deep Ellum called Armoury. After having it I knew I wanted to recreate it the best I could at home. Theirs has a few elements that I didn't add, but it didn't change it that much! 

With the egg white in this cocktail, it was easy for me to do a little research and figure out it is an extremely old drink called the Clover Club Cocktail. While an egg white sounds pretty odd to have in a drink, it doesn't give off flavor at all, it just simply gives you the foam at the top of the glass.

If your'e looking for a delicious way to incorporate some summer berries into a cocktail, the Clover Club Cocktail is the one for you! This is a drink that will surely impress anyone!
