So a few weeks back a few of the Usual Suspects and a couple of Sudo Usual Suspects were sitting around at MySideOfTheBarATL have a few cocktails when J.R. suggested a recipe for some cocktail that I can not remember the name of. (go figure) anyway we dug through the cupboards and we were short one ingredient, walnut bitters. We tried the cocktail with angostura bitters but I was not that impressed
When next I returned I added walnut bitters and the JT was born
3 ounces of Bourbon 1/2 - 1 ounce of Amaretto
4 dashes of Walnut bitters splash of pure maple syrup
Add ingredients to a rock glass with ice and stir. Garnish with a lime wedge or slice
Thanks to J.R and A.M for the recipe and the name. If you are really curious about the name, well you had to be there.

One of the next pool bars we visited was the Redhead Lake Side Grill
I really enjoyed this and almost liked it as much as the Lake Tap and Grill with a couple of exceptions. First it was a long way from homebase of MySideOfTheBarATL. Second they allowed kids 12 and over in the adult pool and third you could not smoke in the pool.

We again ventured out in the Happy Ours (seemingly every other day we cruised on this stead fast vessel)
Good food, good service and great friends.
Central Patti and I ventured to the next spot alone and I have to say as far as the pool itself goes I really enjoyed this one. (nice and warm) We actual…
