Day 280: Southside

A rainy Sunday was made delightful with a new cocktail:

Southside

  • 5 mint leaves
  • 1 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • Garnish: mint sprig

Add the mint leaves and lemon juice into a shaker and gently muddle. Add the gin and simple syrup with ice, and shake until well-chilled. Double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.
