A southside fizz cocktail is a refreshing cocktail made with gin, fresh lemon juice, fresh lime juice, jalapeno simple syrup, and fresh mint leaves, topped off with soda water to give it the "fizz." It's kind of like a gin mojito mixed with a tom collins, so if you like either, this will be your new favorite cocktail recipe!


Units Scale
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 ounces gin

  • You can use regular or zero sugar ginger ale in lieu of club soda to give this south side fizz a ginger flavor!
  • We are obsessed with Empress Gin because of the vibrant purple color but you can use a dry gin if you prefer a less sweeter gin.
  • I love using lower sugar jalapeno simple syrup because it's a lower sugar syrup compared to a lot of commercial options! However, you can use any syrup you'd like, or even honey!
