Dating back to at least 1916 and the classic cocktail book, "Recipes for Mixed Drinks" by Hugo Ensslin, this combination of gin, lemon juice, mint, and sugar feels like a Mint Julep met a Gimlet. Simple and refreshing, it requires no tweaking to make it a standout mocktail. We're not going to let that stop us from adding a few droppers of our Orange bitters, though, because everything is #betterwithbitters.
Southside (Non-Alcoholic Cocktail Recipe)
Non-Alcoholic Cocktail / Low-Alcohol / Zero Proof / Mocktail
Add mint and lemon juice to a shaker tin and gently muddle.
Add gin, simple syrup, bitters, and ice, and shake until chilled.
Double strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a mint sprig.
MAKE IT MINDFULLY LOW ALCOHOL
Just use 1 ounce regular gin and 1 ounce non-alcoholic gin to cut the alcohol in half. Get loose, mindfully!
