Have you ever had a Southside Fizz? I made this quintessential summer cocktail as a part of my online Herbal Mixology class with Gardenuity last summer and I wanted to be sure to share it with you!

Traditionally made with mint lemon lime and gin or vodka, my twist on this classic adds a touch of sweetness with fresh orange juice. Some people use gin in Southsides but I prefer vodka for a cleaner finish. You could even use a lemon infused vodka.

A gorgeous cocktail napkin is a must and these from my friend at Dogwood Hill Designs are a favorite.  She does the most beautiful embroidery. You’ve seen her work here and here.

We will be making these at the lake.  As much as I love a great Margarita, I think these might be my signature cocktail at the lake this summer!

Cheers to a the weekend!  Let me know if you make these or any of my cocktails!
