southside rickey

Posted on March 4, 2012

We’ve been having incredible weather here in San Francisco —highs in the 70s!— and it feels like summer.  This drink is delightful and refreshing and certainly fitting for a summer day, or an unseasonably warm winter one.

Southside Rickey
1 1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 oz lime juice (lemon will also do in a pinch)
2 dashes of Peychaud’s Aeromatic Bitters
spring of mint
club soda

Combine gin, simple syrup, lime juice and bitters. Stir. Add mint and shake with ice. Strain into a chilled glass and top off with a splash of club soda. Garnish with a few leaves of mint. Enjoy!
