By Jonathan Farrell, Archie Rose Bar Manager | Gin | Straight Dry Gin


  • 60ml Signature Dry Gin
  • 25ml Lime Juice
  • 15ml Sugar Syrup
  • 6 Mint Leaves
  • Muddled Cucumber

An Eastside is a variation on the prohibition classic; Southside. An inch or two of cucumber added to the shaker - some people like to muddle - if you've got above-average ice you can do quite a lot of damage to the ingredients without muddling. Muddling is a method of using a large heavy baton to press the fruit to release juice and therefore flavours from ingredients. The cucumber cools the citrus in a Southside, it's a perfect hot afternoon cocktail. The difficulty lies in sticking to one.

Add all ingredients to shaker with ice, hard shake and fine strain into coupette glass.
