Mix This: The Southside

August 21st, 2012 — 4:44pm

A while back, we asked Eric Alperin for a few gin cocktail suggestions. My favorite one that he introduced us to is The Southside. It’s a classic and a perfect summer cocktail.

In researching the drink’s history, there seems to be 3 possible stories of origin:

1. It was created at the Southside Sportsman’s Club on Long Island, NYC, and evolved from the Mint Julep.

2. One says it was created during prohibition at the infamous 21 Club (during prohibition the bar was known as Jack & Charlies).

3. The least likely of the stories (but more exciting), was that it was invented during prohibition in Chicago on the Southside by the infamous and violent Saltis-McErlane gang to make their low quality bathtub spirits more palatable. Most of the evidence suggests that this infamous gang mainly sold beer, not spirits.

The Southside
- 1oz lime
- 3/4oz simple
- 2oz Beefeater Gin
- 5 mint leaves

Hard shake, strain into coupe, mint leaf garnish.
