Southside Cocktail Recipe

The Southside cocktail is a touch more sophisticated then it’s rum drenched cousin, the Mojito.

The basics are the same, with gin, lime juice, mint and sugar combining to create a truly delicious libation. Serve it up for the classic or build it in a highball and top with soda water to create a fizz.

60ml Never Never Southern Strength Gin

30ml fresh lime juice

15ml sugar syrup

8 mint leaves

Garnish with a mint sprig
Add all ingredients into a cocktail tin, add ice and shake furiously. Fine strain into a chilled cocktail glass. For a fizz variation, add the mint to the bottom of a highball, gently press with a barspoon and build the drink using crushed ice. Top with soda water.
