West Side's The Best Side
For when you need a little extra sunshine – the Westside is the chillest cocktail for a California state of mind.
This is called the Westside, so it's one for all you Californians out there. Because when you think of "West Coast Style" cocktails, it's gotta be fresh. There'll be mint, there'll be some zing of freshly picked citrus and there is probably agave syrup.
New Yorkers are allowed, too...
50ml Absolut Vodka
30ml Fresh Lemon Juice
20ml Simple Syrup
6-8 Mint Leaves
Pour all ingredients into a shaker filled with ice cubes and shake until cold. Fine strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a mint leaf.
If you don't want to stay West then try the South Side.
