Prime Southside Cocktail Recipe

Prime Southside Cocktail Recipe

This mint-infused cocktail is a perfect alternate drink to choose on race day. It is a carefully hand-crafted cocktail and refreshing, yet made with gin instead of whiskey. Even though the mint julep is the staple cocktail, not everyone prefers a whiskey based cocktail during the Kentucky Derby which is where the "Prime Southside" comes into play. 

Adolfo Calderon, the corporate mixologist for DineAmic Group (the company that owns Prime & Provisions), came up with the cocktail in an attempt to "go back to the basics" - a motto the company goes by for the steakhouse. The cocktail was inspired by a mojito, but Calderon added a gin twist to it and some egg whites for a frothy finish. 

The "Prime Southside" is made with gin, simple syrup, lemon juice, egg white and mint leaves and has an ampersand branding the cocktail to be one of Prime & Provisions. However, a simple alternative for the ones making it at home is to garnish the cocktail with a mint leaf. The "Prime Southside" will help with the rest of the derby-day which anticipates for an agonizing one, mostly for the ones that made a bet or two on a horse to win. 

Ingredients: 
 2.0 oz. Boodle’s Gin
 1.0 oz. simple syrup
 1.0 oz. lemon juice
 1 egg white
 7 mint leaves 

Directions:
Combine all ingredients into a shaker over ice. Shake and strain into a coupe glass. Add mint leaf for garnish
