The Shearer Delight

Well it was a typical Martini Hour here at MySideOfTheBar yesterday. Started around 4 and ended, hell I can't even remember when. Several shifts of "Usual Suspects" popped in and out and I can safely say a good time was had by all. If you follow @mysideofthebar on Twitter or happen to be one of the luck ones who is a friend on Facebook you have already see a tweet on some new alcohol that recently showed up at the bar.

So in typical fashion we had to create a cocktail fitting not only the mood here, but also the crowd. (not that I gave them much choice) I really had no experience with Crown and that is my bad given the popularity of the Whiskey.

So without further ado here is the cocktail and the tale that goes with it.

1 Part Crown
1 Part Maple Syrup
1 Part Cream de Cacao
1 Part Whipped Vodka
Splash of Skim Milk (cream, whatever)

And in typical MySideOfTheBar fashion we had to name this elixir of the Gods. Several names were tossed around, however it was D.R. who came up wi…

Baypoint Martini Hour

Martini Hour at Baypoint starts at four
If you don't see a flag then don't go through the door

The Pretty Pink Drink is not what you think
If has sweet and sass
and if you drink to many it will kick your ass

We have Old Fashions and Manhattans
Vespers and Martini's
and many times women in bikinis

You have Central Patti and Chrissy O. cackling all day
All the while Martini's are putting them away
And if by chance they have it dirty
They are long  gone by 4:30

And Stevie O spinning his toasts Even though he will never boast He has no fear  As he cracks open a Busch Beer
Steve and Sandi may well drink the bar Which is fine cause here you never need go far
We have Dennis and Dot who never drink a lot But if by chance they do you know their night is through
There is Mike and Peggy, Craig and Sharon  That when the leave here they are well beyond a carin
Jerry and Mariata, Dan and Tara and Kurt and Ann are new to the mix and even they seem to get their kicks
Songs get sung  a…

Coconuts, Lake of the Ozarks

As most of my tens of readers know, I spend a lot of my free time in Bars, Pubs, Taverns etc. I get to enjoy many new experiences and cocktails and what can I say, life is good.

It is not often I get overjoyed with a new spot, however a couple of weeks back I took a quick water ride on a waver runner and parked at Coconuts on the Lake of the Ozarks.

Coconuts is located at the 7 MM of the Gravois Arm and as long as you stay to the right of the Gas Hole sign you can't miss it as the property is very expansive.

Coconuts offers a basketball court, sand volleyball, ladder golf & washers! For the kids - water trampoline, new expanded playground on the beach, 3-hole miniature golf, and ice cream shack!

However the main attraction to me is the large pool with TWO swim up bars. I would also be remiss if I did not state that the quality of the food is most excellent. I cannot say the prices are cheap, however with quality of the food and the great atmosphere it is well worth a stop.
