The blueprint of modern mixology was sketched out during the pre-Prohibition days of the late-19th century, an era when the cocktail was a sophisticated concoction of hardy spirits and handmade mixers. Today, many bars pay homage to those grand old days by mixing up some classics.

THE CLOVER CLUB
This is the namesake cocktail of both a long-gone Philadelphia journalists’ club, where the drink originated, and a bar in New York where the drinks of yore are served today. It’s pink, but it goes down strong.
Start to finish: 5 minutes
Servings: 1
1 1/2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce raspberry syrup
1/2 tablespoon (1/4 ounce) egg white
In an ice-filled cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients and shake vigorously. Strain into a cocktail glass.
