South Side

Essentially a Mojito with London Dry Gin instead of rum, this cocktail is named after one of Chicago's most famous districts, and packs a sweet-sour punch.

Serves:

1

2.1 units of alcohol per serve

Method

  • Ice

    Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.

  • Pour

    Using a jigger, measure 50ml London Dry Gin, 25ml lemon juice and 12ml sugar syrup into the shaker.

    Add 8 mint leaves.

     

  • Mix

    Shake the mixture vigorously until the surface of the cocktail shaker feels chilled.

    Use a cocktail strainer to strain into a martini glass.

  • Garnish

    Place 2 mint leaves on top of the drink to garnish.

  • Grab a bite

    Get some grub in before or while you’re drinking – it slows alcohol absorption.
