The Hideout's South Cider

  • 30ml Gurt Lush Gin - Boutiquey Gin Company (or a decent London Dry)
  • 15ml Lime Juice
  • 15ml Sugar Syrup (1:1)
  • Pinch of mint
  • Top with Dry Cider


This refreshing little beauty is based on the classic “South Side” cocktail, with one simple change, the addition of some good old West Country cider. This lengthens the drink out and making a long fresh, smashable beverage. You might want to make a bucket.
