The Southside cocktail is one of the sharpest and most refreshing, gin-based drinks you can make with a shaker. It is a very simple drink, but be careful with the doses and never weigh the mint, otherwise, you could ruin its delicate balance.

The Southside cocktail ingredients are common and readily available: gin, fresh mint, lemon or lime juice, and sugar syrup. Put everything in the shaker with ice and shake quickly to cool the cocktail.

There are two variations to consider. One is the Southside Fizz cocktail, where a drop of soda is added to make the cocktail more jaunty and graceful. And the other is the Southside with a small addition of Masthia Skinos Southside the mastic resin distillate, a product that if drunk neat is a bit monolithic, but which if well sipped can add splendid herbaceous and balsamic notes to an infinity of cocktails.

History of the Southside cocktail

There are no written sources or recipes of this cocktail, although legend has it that, during Prohibition, it was the cocktail of the underworld of the southern Chicago area.
