The Clover Club is an official International Bartenders Association cocktail made of gin, raspberry syrup, lemon juice and an egg white, that dates back to 1896. The egg white doesn’t add any flavour, it just provides the drink with a rather extravagant foamy head.
A Manhattan cocktail is made with whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters. Typically, rye is the traditional whiskey of choice in a Manhattan but some mixologists prefer using Canadian whisky, bourbon, blended whiskey or Tennessee whiskey. Generally, the cocktail is stirred then strained into a cocktail glass and garnished with a twist of orange zest or Maraschino cherry.
It is thought that the Manhattan cocktail originated at the Manhattan Club in New York City in the early 1870s. However as there are prior references to various similar cocktail recipes called "Manhattan" in the 1860s, the exact history is uncertain.
The Long Island Iced Tea was named for its visual resemblance to a non-alcoholic Iced tea. However, it couldn’t be more different in taste and alcoholic content, containing an array of beverages; typically made with vodka, light rum, tequila, triple sec and gin. Having the same hue as its namesake is the only similarity!
This cocktail has a much higher alcohol concentration than most long drinks due to the relatively small amount of mixer used and the combination of several alcoholic beverages.
