Deep Southside


  • 50ml Deep South Distillery Cape Dry Gin
  • ½ fresh lime, diced
  • 6-8 fresh mint leaves
  • 25ml simple sugar syrup


Muddle the lime pieces, sugar syrup and the mint leaves in a shaker.  Add Deep South Cape Dry Gin and ice, and shake.  Strain into a martini glass.  Garnish with a slapped mint leaf and a wheel of fresh lime.  

Variation: For a Dirty Southside, empty the contents of the shaker into a tall glass, mint and crushed lime included, top up with soda and ice.

[Simple Syrup:  Mix 250g of sugar, 250ml water and ½ tsp lemon juice in a saucepan. Simmer (not boil) for 5 minutes, cool and store in fridge for up to 2 weeks]
