A White Lady with fresh mint and champagne.
Topped with soda (from a siphon, please) in place of champagne this becomes a mere 'Southside'.
The Southside was created during Prohibition, either at a New York City speakeasy called Jack & Charlie's, or at Manhattan's Stork Club, or by Chicago's Southside gang to make their bootleg liquor more palatable. Variations include this "Royale" version with champagne.
There are approximately 184 calories in one serving of Southside Royale.
