Jazzing up a traditional cocktail is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a twist on a classic. A Southside is usually made with gin, lemon juice and syrup. Adding a hint of peppermint to the syrup gives the cocktail a wonderfully fresh flavour. Alternatively, you can also use lime juice instead of lemon juice and so give the cocktail an additional flavour.
