Southside Cocktail


Mint, Banks and lime combine for this super-refreshing Non-Alcoholic Southside recipe.

This simple, refreshing non-alcoholic mocktail recipe shares many similarities with the likes of the Mojito. Lime and mint are combined with a little bit of simple syrup to create a crisp and balanced drink that is not too sweet, and not too sour. The aromatics in the mint help to further bring out the herbaceousness of the batch distilled Banks Herbarium Non-Alcoholic Spirit, making it the perfect choice for sipping on a summer afternoon.

The Southside cocktail is generally believed to have originated in the Southside district of Chicago during the Prohibition era. It’s rumoured that the South Side Gang created this recipe was a way of hiding the rough, home-brewed gin that the gang sold to customer through Chicago’s underground speakeasies.

There’s something nice about creating a non-alcoholic Southside Mocktail recipe given it’s roots in the non-drinking prohibition period of its origin.

Mix Notes

When mixing drinks with a non-alcoholic spirit such as Banks we want to reduce time that Banks mixes with Ice before the drink is served.

This is because the flavours are water soluble so as the ice melts it dilutes the flavours. It is suggested to always dry mix ingredients in a shaker before pouring over ice or adding ice to the shaker.
