YASSSSSSSSS.  That’s the sound my brain makes when I drink this cocktail. It’s basically a southside, plus a little bit of extra. Throw in some mint for extra freshness, pour in some club soda to make it fizz, and you’ve got yourself the ultimate hot weather drink. Just throw down a towel, grab a straw, and soak in the sun.
