This cool and refreshing classic cocktail is made with gin, citrus, simple syrup, and fresh mint. There are many variations, but this mix with lime juice served up in a coupe glass is one of the most popular (and delicious!)
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill it 3/4 with ice.
Shake until chilled, then strain the cocktail into a coupe glass.
Garnish with mint.
Some prefer to use lemon juice instead of lime. Try both and see what you like best!
Make it a Southside Fizz by serving it over ice in a tall glass and topping it off with soda water. If you use lemon juice it will taste like a minty Tom Collins, if you use lime it will taste like a Mojito made with gin. Yum!
Make it a Southside Royal Fizz by using sparkling wine instead of soda water. Scale back the gin to 1 ounce to keep the drink from becoming too boozy.
