Killer New Year's Eve Cocktail: Southside of France

Looking for some delicious and festive cocktails to mix for your New Year's Eve party? Try this Patch favorite!

Killer New Year's Eve Cocktail: Southside of France
—By Patch Staff

This cocktail brings in elements of two classics: The Southside and The French 75. It's an effervescent mix of gin, sparkling wine, fresh lemon, sugar and mint, and it looks great all dolled up in a champagne glass.

  • 1½ oz gin
  • ¾ oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ¾ oz simple syrup
  • 5-6 mint leaves
  • 1-2 oz champagne

Combine gin, lemon, simple and mint in a mixing glass. Fill with ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain into a champagne glass and top with champagne. Garnish with a single mint leaf by rubbing the rim of the glass and then dropping gently into the drink.

Happy New Year, Los Gatos!
