Tea Time with ‘THE SOUTH SIDE FIZZ’
Enjoy a light drink that has some dark history. The preferred beverage of bootlegger Al Capone and his crew. Al Capone’s gang ran the south side of Chicago hence the name South Side Fizz. The North Side’s rival booze runners were bringing in a smoother gin to their speakeasies, which made gin with a splash of ginger ale a little easier on tongue. But the South Side’s gin had a much rougher bite, and so more elements were added to make it the high demand drink it became.

THE FRENCH 75
Named in 1926. The inspiration for the title was apparently a 75mm Howitzer field gun used by the French and the Americans in World War 1. The gun was known for its accuracy and speed, and the French 75 is said to have such a kick that it felt like being hit by just such a weapon.
THE Speaks BEES KNEES
Another bathtub gin-based cocktail that came to fame in Prohibition was this sweet drink. The Speaks delectable cocktail is a twist on the orignal, combining gin with honey syrup, lemon juice, Amaro and a dash of bee pollen. Like the South Side Fizz, these sweet ingredients were intended to smooth off the jagged edges of the illegal hooch.
