Be My Yes

My little Be My Yes hashtag in liquid form. The drink is actually a marriage of two recipes for the same drink (Clover Club); they each shared only the gin and the lemon juice as ingredients. Totally not planned out that way but now that I think of it very apt as I am thinking very strongly of my homeland tonight and anxiously awaiting the marriage referendum results.

2 oz gin
.75 oz dry vermouth
.75 lemon juice
White of one egg (used one for 2 drinks)
1 tsp raspberry jam (more if you like it sweeter)
Fresh raspberry for garnish

Mix all ingredients together with ice, shake well to make sure the jam has dissolved. Strain into chilled cocktail glasses.

Serve with a decent dose of optimism for a bright future for all.
