The Slow Clap is a unique beer cocktail good enough to convert the most ardent beer cocktail naysayers into avid beer cocktail lovers. It is the brainchild of celebrated bartender Ivy Mix, who plies her trade at Brooklyn's Clover Club.

The Slow Clap brings together Green Flash West Coast I.P.A. with sweet Old Tom Gin, camomile syrup, lemon juice and Italian digestive Cardamaro. The beer is very hoppy even by I.P.A. standards, but is calmed down a notch by the camomile and Cardamaro, taking on a surprisingly floral and fruity form.

This cocktail is but one example of Ivy Mix's innovative approach to putting together drinks, something that has won her acclaim far and wide.
