Shots! The Old Cuban and Southside

For a Labor Day weekend edition of “Shots,” Liquid Gold hosts Mike and Kenneth go over two late summer, mint-forward, insanely delicious cocktails: the Old Cuban, and the Southside. Audrey Saunders’ modern classic celebrates its 20-year anniversary, while Kenneth goes over the Al Capone-prohibition era classic used to celebrate scores on the Southside of Chicago. Recipes and stories abound, as Kenneth tells us why he’s nonplussed by the new Top Gun, and Mike gives a bonus shot, the greatest mint-forward tiki drink ever created: the Missionary’s Downfall. Happy weekend imbibing from Liquid Gold!
