A southside is a favourite cocktail that is a refreshing mix of gin, lime and mint. This one has a spring garden twist, and instead of being served in a martini or coupe glass, it is served in a rocks or short glass over crushed ice so the drink lengthens as the ice melts.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 lebanese (short) cucumber
60ml gin
30ml lime juice
20ml Sugar snap-pea syrup
5 mint leaves
extra sprig of mint or a brightly coloured edible flower to garnish

Method

  1. Using a mandoline — or some mad knife skills — slice 2 paper-thin lengthways slices from the cucumber and wrap them around the inside of a rocks or short glass. Cut 3 thick slices from the remaining cucumber and muddle these in the bottom of a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and shake with ice. Fill the cucumber-lined glass with crushed ice, and pass the cocktail through a small fine-meshed strainer into the glass. Garnish with a mint sprig or flower.
