Review:

Gin and mint with a splash of lime. If you like Mojitos and you like gin, then you'll also like this cocktail.

History:

This vintage cocktail is purported to have originated at New York's Twenty-One Club. A long version served over crushed ice is said to have come from the southside of Chicago during Prohibition where it was drunk by the Southside mobsters, while on the other side of town hoodlums enjoyed the Northside (gin and ginger ale).
