Make this Strawberry Southside Cocktail with only 5 ingredients. See what I used and any alternatives I recommend.
To make this delicious and refreshing mixed drink start by adding a cut-up strawberry and mint leaves to a cocktail shaker and gently muddle to break down and infuse these flavors.
Next, add your preferred gin, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, and ice to the cocktail shaker, and shake until the outside of the cocktail tin is chilled. Strain the mixture into a coupe glass. Lastly, garnish with a strawberry and mint sprig for a finished look.
If you’re interested in making your own homemade simple syrup, I recommend making this first and allowing it to cool. Try this recipe here! P.S bottle up the simple syrup and keep it in your refrigerator for a few weeks.
