South Side of Faversham

Posted: August 7th, 2018 - In Cocktails, Coxy’s, Drinks, Gin, Liqueurs, Recipes

A twist on the Cuban classic, a South Side is a Mojito made with gin. Think Mojito in the middle of the English countryside, bees buzzing, grass swaying. A perfect cocktail for high summer!

Makes 1
Ingredients

50ml Coxy’s Lavender Gin
8 Mint leaves
2 sugar cubes
25ml Fresh Lime juice
Soda water
Ice
Lemon or lime to garnish

Method
Add the sugar cubes, mint leaves & lime juice to a highball glass and using the handle of a wooden spoon give it a good bash and muddle, carry on until the sugar is dissolved. Fill the glass up with a generous handful of ice and then pour over the Coxy’s Lavender Gin and top the whole thing up with soda water. Give the cocktail a good stir to mix the sugar through the drink. Use a slice of lemon or lime to garnish and enjoy on a sunny day in a deckchair.
