We wanted something fresh to enjoy this week so we have partnered with Martin Miller’s gin to create this tropical spin on the already fresh and delicious Southside cocktail. For this variation, we incorporated pineapple juice into the mix, which gave a sweet yet tangy flavor to it, and then threw in an egg white to amalgamate all the flavors. It turned out delicious and the pineapple really accentuates the citrus notes already present in the Martin Miller’s gin.
I chose the Southside Cocktail because of its delicious fresh flavors and it is usually referred to as “the gin Mojito”. This cocktail also made so much sense because whenever I think of Martin Miller’s I think of the magnificent fresh Icelandic Spring Water used in the blending process. I considered using a mint simple syrup in this recipe, and if you want to it certainly turned out great, however, I found by shaking in fresh mint you really get the best fresh herbal flavor into the cocktail.
