27 Reviews

The Southside Cocktail is a very refreshing and fruity cocktail that combines the taste of sweet and sour like no other. Thanks to the mint leaves used, the drink has a very refreshing taste that clearly stands out from other gins cocktails. The Southside Cocktail can best be compared to a Tom Collins, Gin Fizz or Gin Sour. Thanks to the mint leaves, however, the flavour is decisively different. Sometimes the drink is also compared to a classic mint julep whisky cocktail. Try the summery drink yourself and let its unique aroma convince you!
