The Botanist Southside

The Botanist Southside

They say The Southside was Al Capone’s Favourite drink. A long version of the drink with crushed ice originated on the Chicago’s south side and was enjoyed by Southside Mobsters. The Mafiosi from the other side of town favoured the Northside cocktail (gin & ginger ale).


60mL The Botanist Gin
30mL Lime juice
15mL Sugar syrup
5-6 Mint leaves


Pour ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice & shake well. Double strain & pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a mint leaf

Bartender’s Tip:

Swap mint leaf for your choice of small foraged edible flowers.
