Southsides are the quintessential summer cocktail and a tradition in Maryland. Southsides flow freely at pool gatherings, polo matches, and steeplechase races. George Lee is known as the Southside guru in Maryland. He was the head bartender at Green Spring Valley Hunt Club in 1969 and he is still making his legendary mix. Lee's Southside recipe is closely guarded and very sought after. This weeks mission...track down a bottle of George Lee's Southside Mix.
Us Marylanders are lucky to have Lindsay's Southside Mix sold at all our local stops and it's also available online for out-of-towners.
