The Southside Cocktail - A Classic Minty Delight
The Southside cocktail is a classic minty delight that originated in the prohibition era. It is a refreshing and vibrant cocktail that combines the flavors of fresh mint, lime juice, simple syrup, and gin. This drink is perfect for a hot summer day or a night out with friends.
To make a Southside cocktail, start by filling a shaker with ice. Add a handful of fresh mint leaves, the juice of half a lime, and a dash of simple syrup. Then, pour in two ounces of gin. Shake the mixture vigorously for about 10 seconds to release the flavors of the mint and lime. Strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a sprig of mint or a lime wheel.
The Southside cocktail is a versatile drink that can be customized to suit your taste. If you prefer a sweeter drink, you can add more simple syrup. If you like a stronger cocktail, you can add more gin. Some variations of the Southside recipe also call for the addition of soda water to give it a fizzy finish.
Whether you are hosting a cocktail party or just want to enjoy a delicious and refreshing drink, the Southside cocktail is a must-try. Its combination of fresh mint and lime flavors make it a perfect choice for any occasion. So, gather your ingredients, shake up a Southside, and enjoy the taste of this classic cocktail!
