Southside Cocktail

This is a Chicago cocktail that stands opposed to the city's less-popular Chicago Cocktail, a cognac drink. The name refers to Chicago's South Side. The drink and part of town are experiencing a revival.
  • 3 oz. gin (Strange Monkey used)
  • 1 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. bar sugar
  • mint sprig
Combine all ingredients except mint sprig in a shaker with ice. Shake and double strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a mint sprig.
(Alternatively I like to throw a few mint leaves in the shaker and strain them out to get more mint flavor into the drink.)
