Southside

According to one story, the drink was the preferred beverage of Al Capone, whose gang dominated Chicago’s South Side. The gin imported by Capone’s rivals on the North Side of Chicago was smooth, and usually consumed with ginger ale. However, the gin run by Capone’s gang had a rougher edge to it, and required more sweeteners to make it palatable. Thus the South Side was born.
