The East Side With Hendrick's Gin

The East Side, something like the South Side or Chicago South Side as they have gin and mint but the bitters design is different and the flavor profile is different.

We pick Hendrick's which is probably a good idea given the cucumber and mint combination along side the juniper-muted gin.
