Pictures of the purported menu circulating on social media appear to show the recipe for a "N*****ita" — tequila, watermelon and a splash of sour. In the pictures the list appears laminated, leading some to suggest that it was not a drink menu for customers but a recipe book for bartenders. The source of the image could not be immediately determined.
Asked whether the picture was of a recipe book in use behind the bar, Simmons said, "Not to my knowledge. I know nothing about this. We are investigating at this time."
Social media posts claimed that an unidentified employee of an Athens printer, Bel-Jean Copy/Print, saw the menu at the print shop, took a photo of it and posted it to a social media account. The post was later removed.
Contacted Tuesday evening, the store’s manager, who would only identify himself as McKenzie, said he was not familiar with such a job. “We didn’t print those,” he said.
