Crafthouse Cocktails Southside
Essentially a Gin Sour or Collins infused with fresh mint, the Southside is a classic gin cocktail that has only recently been brought back to life. Call it a “gateway cocktail.” That is, an easy-drinking cocktail for bar patrons who might otherwise feel shy about drinking gin, although longtime gin lovers flock to this one as well. It starts with a classic London Dry-style gin — distilled to Crafthouse's specifications — which is combined with real lime juice, a touch of simple syrup and a bouquet of mint for flavor and aroma.
Serve the Southside over ice, garnished with a fresh mint sprig.
