Time Is What We Want Most

Unusual, tasty, strong, bright and fruity.

Inspired by the Clover Club (named after the private social club in Philadelphia), this classic cocktail gets a spicy new twist.

The fresh coffee bean aroma and hints of dark chocolate and cherry flavor of Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur combined with the robust and higher proof Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon shine in this pre-prohibition style inspired cocktail. Hints of caramel and toast from the Yards Brawler (English Mild Ale) combined with the tartness of the raspberries and the lemons brightness add complexity to the profile. The silky foamy texture from the egg white provides body and the dusting of cayenne complements the raspberry flavor and gives a slightly smoky, mild, tingling heat.

It is a new cocktail that embodies the genteel spirit and hearty culture of the people who enjoyed the Clover Club back in the 19th century with the grit and sassiness of Philly today.
