If you’re a big fan of golf, we’re betting you haven’t turned off the TV since Monday when the 79th Masters Tournament started. Whether you’re tuning in to root for Tiger or just to hear the loud bird chirps emanate from Augusta’s course, we know one thing for sure: you’ll need a golf-themed drink (or two) in hand. We’ll start the recipes off simple with a classic:
Spiked Arnold Palmer (1 serving):
- Iced tea
- 1 ½ oz. Bourbon or vodka
In a tall glass with ice, pour in your choice of alcohol followed by half iced tea and then the remaining half lemonade. Stir and enjoy.
Hole-In-One (1 serving):
- ¼ tsp. lemon juice
- 1 ¾ oz. scotch
- ¾ oz. vermouth
Combine all ingredients in an ice filled cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into a cocktail glass and serve.
Country Club Cooler (1 serving):
- 2 oz. dry vermouth
- ½ tsp. grenadine
- 3-4 oz. soda or sparkling water
- 1 twist lemon peel and/or orange peel (optional)
Pour the grenadine syrup and half of the soda water into a tall glass and stir. Add ice cubes and the vermouth. Top off with the remaining soda water and stir again. Finish by garnishing with one or both citrus peels.
Nineteenth Hole (1 serving):
- 1 ½ oz. gin
- 1 oz. dry vermouth
- 1 tsp. sweet vermouth
- 1 dash Angostura bitters
- olives (optional)
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all ingredients. Shake well, for at least 20 seconds, and then decant mixture into a martini glass. Top with a couple olives and drink up.
