Cocktail of the Week: Southside



While I love my Moscow Mules, there is no drink that says summer quite like a vodka Southside. Similar in taste to the mojito, the Southside is the quintessential country club drink of choice and is gaining popularity at bars. You can prepare it with white rum or vodka but I prefer vodka (the boys in my family prefer the rum).



*Makes 1 (I find that having a pitcher made is always more fun...)
2 oz vodka
1/2 oz triple sec (a little more if you like yours sweeter)
2 oz lime juice
Ice (I love lots of ice in mine- shake in a shaker to make it extra cold)
Mint leaves (make sure to pick into small pieces and muddle at the bottom of your glass to really get a taste of the mint)
1 - 2 oz soda water (depending on how much fizz you want)

Enjoy! This drink always reminds me of hot summer nights at the club.
