Sometimes, a little afternoon cocktail hour in the sun is all you need. Recipe for happiness:
Cocktail of choice in glass of choice (my BU graduation gift glass is my favorite, I like to feel like I got my money’s worth)
Here I’ve made myself a Southside, an excellent substitute to a Mojito if you’re more into gin like me, or just don’t have rum on hand, also like me.
2 oz gin
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1 sprig mint
1 oz simple syrup
2 lime wedges
Muddle ingredients together and then shake well in mixing glass. Pour over ice and fill with club soda. Enjoy in the sun, even in winter.
