As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make a glass or two on us, you deserve it.


Reyka Southside

An elegant cocktail pulled straight from the lava rocks of Iceland, the Reyka Southside combines the biting taste of arctic water with a glacial cool of minty relief.



  • 2 parts Reyka vodka
  • 1 part fresh lime juice
  • 0.75 part simple syrup
  • 4-6 mint leaves
