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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
