Inspire Happy Hour Cocktail - Southside

Enjoy Happy Hour with a Southside

It’s the end of another week and now it is time to celebrate all of your hard work. This week’s prohibition cocktail is the Southside.

The origin of this drink is a little muddy, but most say it was the drink of choice for Al Capone & his gang. Some say it came from the South Side of Chicago and created to eliminate the harsh taste of bootleg gin. Yet others profess it is from NYC's "21" Club, where it is a signature cocktail today.

Try Making the Southside Yourself:

  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 4 or 5 fresh mint leaves
