How to Make a Cucumber Southside - part of the exotic cocktails video series by GeoBeats.
Hi I'm Scott Mayer. I'm the mixologist here at Miami's oldest bar in Cabaret, Tobacco Road.
Our cocktail today, we're going to do a Cucumber Southside. We're going to start off with three pieces of fresh cucumber. We're going to go ahead and tear a little bit of fresh mint. We're going to give that a nice muddle. Now we're going to go ahead and add the juice of one lime. We're going to add about an ounce of simple syrup. It's just equal part sugar and water. And some more of the Bombay Sapphire Gin.
This cocktail was actually the featured cocktail of the 21 Club in New York, is probably the most famous of the New York's speakeasies. This drink is then shaken with ice. Put into a highball. Let's ice this highball down first. Now we're going to go ahead and top that with some club soda. Just for fun we'll go ahead and garnish that with a cucumber wheel and a straw. And there you have it, the Cucumber Southside.
