Description

The Southside cocktail is an easy and refreshing gin drink made with mint, lemon and lime: think of it like a gin mojito!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 mint leaves
  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) gin
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) lemon juice*
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) simple syrup or maple syrup
  • For the garnish: Lemon twist, mint leaves

Instructions

  1. Add the mint leaves to a cocktail shaker and muddle them.
  2. Add the gin, lemon juice, lime juice and syrup to cocktail shaker. Fill it with ice and shake until cold.
  3. Strain the drink into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an additional mint leaf (smack it between your hands to release the oils) and a lemon twist.

Notes

*You can also drop the lemon and do 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) lime juice total.
