Southside Cocktail Recipe


If you're a gin cocktail fan, you should add this one to your repertoire. Ask your nearest bartender or cocktail historian to describe the South Side, and you’ll likely receive a variety of responses. Some say it’s a Gimlet with mint that’s served up in a cocktail glass. Others describe it as a gin-based Mint Julep served over ice. Either way, it combines some of our favourite flavour combos; Gin + lemon + mint = delicious.
