As one who used to tend bar on occasion, I love trying new cocktails. I was watching The Kitchen yesterday on Food Network and Geoffrey Zakarian always incorporates a new cocktail at the end of the show. This episode it was the Southside Cocktail. And I happened to have all the ingredients. Imagine that? Yes, a former bartender usually always has everything on hand to make any cocktail known to man!
So, last evening I commenced to making this delightfully light cocktail. It's very yummy!! Try it!
