Eastside



The Eastside is an incredibly fresh, vibrant cocktail falling under the ever-versatile sour umbrella. Owing much to its predominant flavours being constant crowd-pleasers, the Eastside is almost always good.


The key to elevating yours is threefold. The first is simple, and isn't exactly anything ground-breaking - fresh, high-quality ingredients. Lime, cucumber and mint should be squeezed, muddled and pressed from fresh.


The next integral element is finding a balance between those ingredients. While mint and cucumber are a match made in heaven, you don't want one to be overarching. (If you do, maybe try our Southside)

Finally, use the best gin you can. While this drink is far from spirit-forward, and any very-affordable London Dry will make for a mean Eastside, using a more premium gin with a botanical profile which compliments the fresh ingredients in this (or any) cocktail will not go unnoticed.



60ml - Gin of your choice

22.5ml - Lime Juice

22.5ml - Simple Syrup

3-4 chunks of fresh cucumber

5-6 mint leaves


In a shaker, muddle the cucumber, mint, simple syrup and lime juice. Add the gin, fill the tin with ice, and shake vigorously for 10 seconds.


Double strain into a rocks glass filled with ice.

Garnish with a cucumber slice and a sprig of mint.
