Good God Damn: The Nice and Easy at the Old Pal here in Normaltown, Athens, Georgia. It's a sophisticated riff on a classic, the Tom Collins. Good gin. Lavender bitters. Lemon. About all the refreshment you need in this weather. I feature it soon in the food section of the Athens Banner-Herald. But it's hard not to post these pictures now.
Old Pal co-owner Matt McFerron helped me out with this feature, and we worked together for a piece in an upcoming cookbook about blueberries. You'll know more soon.
