This thing of beauty is a Keto clover club prohibition era cocktail, modified so it has no sugar. That simple modification makes this cocktail a perfect low-carb addition to your drinks menu. So exciting. Published versions of the recipe date back to 1917, where its unusual combination of ingredients made cocktail very popular at the time. The Clover Club is a bit tart but still sweet, and egg white provides body as well as a rich foamy head. Overall, the drink has complexity to make it visually stunning as well great tasting.
The only work you really have to do upfront is make the ‘Sugar-Free’ Raspberry Syrup. It takes about half an hour to make and then you have to let it cool. Ideally you will make this ahead of time, but once you do, you are set as it only takes a minutes to whip up your Keto Clover Club cocktail. Garnish with raspberries or a lemon wedge and it makes a fabulous dessert, or wows guests as a first cocktail before a meal.
Really presentation is everything so you are going to want to have the right glasses to show off this layered beauty of deep pink with that pinkish white whipped froth on top. Yum! I selected a champagne coupe styled glass as it finished the elegant look nicely. In a pinch a martini glass would do as well. No matter what glass you use, savour each sip and enjoy.
The recipe is below. Let me know what you think of it & post a picture of how you dressed yours up!
Hope you enjoy this drink as much I do.

Yup, that’s me with my eyes closed while my hubby takes the picture. Totally me. I’m in my happy place doing one of my favourite things: on a hike in the Cape Breton Highlands.
I started my low-carb journey three years ago, for health reasons, determined to make a Low Carb, High Fat, Keto diet work for me as a lifestyle, without the exercise in deprivation with constant calls to the fun police.
I thought, as someone with a severe peanut/tree nut allergy, I am already a pro at adapting recipes to my nut-free existence, so adapting Keto to also be nut-free is something I can master. Truly, I love both the experimentation and the glee when I hit upon something fabulous and all with no sugar! It’s here where the idea was born for lafemmenikketo.com. I feel like a superhero baker and cook with a whisk in hand, whipping the carbs gone to make fabulous nut-free treats without the sugar. This, to me, is simply joyous. I hope you think so too!
