Southside Cocktail

Essentially a minty gin Daiquiri, the Southside is a remarkably easy four-ingredient cocktail that should be a go-to for every home bartender. Though most cocktail buffs and historians agree that the drink first appeared sometime around 1913, its exact history is murky. The Southside was either created in Chicago and named for the city’s South Side district, or it was first made at the Southside Sportsmen's Club in Long Island, New York. Thanks to Prohibition, the crisp, clean cocktail was almost forgotten, but, luckily, it resurfaced in the early 2000s at craft cocktail bars like Milk & Honey. Now it stands alongside its classic brethren as a must-know tipple.
