Southside

Southside cocktail with fresh mint, simple syrup, gin, lime (or lemon) juice, and Angostura bitters

The Southside is a gorgeous pre-Prohibition cocktail that gained many followers among the well-heeled denizens of various East Coast social clubs. It was very likely meant to be a Julep riff, but it’s got enough style to stand on its own.

Over time, Southside recipes shifted from lemon juice to lime juice. Either citrus is lovely, so choose whichever one you prefer.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
