The Cocktail

A take on the Southside cocktail, with added cucumber created in 2004 by George Delgado in NYC. The freshness of the cucumber and mint pops out from the Gin balanced base.

 

Bartender Tip:

Placing the mint within your palms and clapping will release the aromatic mint oils from the leaves.
