Westsides at Woodberry Kitchen

Woodberry puts a creative spin on a classic local drink.

Pretty much everyone in the Baltimore area knows about a drink called the Southside—a popular country club cocktail commonly made with rum, lemon and lime juice, mint, and crushed ice. But what about the Westside?

Since fresh mint is now in season, Woodberry Kitchen has decided to roll out some summer drinks. On their menu is the ever-popular mint julep (101 proof Kentucky bourbon, mint, crushed iced) available for $12. But they're also introducing the Westside, which I'm assuming is named after the fact that the restaurant is located in Northwest Baltimore.

According to their Facebook page, the drink is Woodberry Kitchen's "version of a Southside. It's basically organic vodka, hand-squeezed lemonade, and mint." They go on to describe it as "pretty darn good." We'll have to try it out and see.

For more information about the Southside (and who makes the best one), check out our story in the upcoming June issue.
