Millennial pink. Tumblr pink. Scandi pink. Candy pink. Pale dogwood. Blush. Rose gold. Rose quartz. Rosé. Frosé. Call it what you will, the soft, sweet, nearly-neutral hue of a generation is all around and here to stay. We prefer it in a cocktail. How about you?
A pink drink that’s no wimp, this classic cocktail dates back to 1896 when it was first shaken up for the Clover Club, a gentlemen’s club that met at Philadelphia’s Bellevue-Stratford Hotel. You can replace the raspberry syrup with grenadine or red currant syrup.

• 0.75 oz fresh lemon juice
• 2 tsp raspberry syrup
• 1 fresh egg white
Combine ingredients in a shaker and shake without ice for 10 seconds. Add ice and shake vigorously for at least 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe. Serves 1.
