Southern Lady

Southern Lady

Southern Lady is a long drink, which combines the best of both worlds. It was created by bartender Frank Meier sometime during the 1920s while he was working at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. One day, Meier came across strawberry syrup and decided to create a new cocktail with it. The fruit notes are what make this drink distinctly southern.
