Cocktail of the Week

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!

 Southside Cocktail    

Yields: 1 Servings
2 ounce Gin
1 ounce Lime juice fresh squeezed
3/4 ounce Simple Syrup
1 sprig Mint
1 Mint leaf

Combine the gin, lime juice, simple syrup and mint sprig in a shaker. Add some ice cubes and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
