JCT Kitchen in Atlanta, GA, is synonymous with the best-fried-chicken-you’ll-ever-eat-in-your-life. Not surprisingly, they serve kick ass cocktails. I’ll be honest, sometimes this blog gets hard because all the bars seem to serve the same stuff. I’m a little tired of cocktails with ginger beer, a few drops of “name any herb” bitters, or muddled whatever’s on hand. JCT’s list of cocktails makes me remember why I started this blog - a search for unique libations to share with anyone else who has a passion for cocktails. Now after saying all that, you might be surprised that I selected the only cocktail on the menu that had BEER in it. Not only beer, MILLER HIGH LIFE! Why? Because I don’t see that anywhere else! And you know what? It rocked my world! I like to think of it as a perfectly balanced gourmet beer margarita sweetened with thyme goodness.

THE LUSH LADY IS ONE YEAR OLD!
And what better way to celebrate than at a highly regarded local Atlanta establishment with a kick ass cocktail menu that could compete against any major city - I’m talking about H Harpers Station.
Any celebration calls for champagne, so shown here is The Little Prince - Don Diego Blanco, Yellow Chartreuse, Herbsaint and Gruet Rose Sparkling. I also had to celebrate with some bourbon (their staple Bufala Negra cocktail), some tequila (please try the Calexico), and some scotch (the Alchemist). You just can’t go wrong at their bar. The food was equally as divine.
