19th Hole: 5 Post Game Cocktails We Know You Will Love
After a long day on the golf course, there are few things more refreshing than the first sip of a hand-crafted cocktail. While recuperating at the club house, be sure to try one of the following drinks to keep your spirits up (or all of them, we won’t tell):
1. The Azalea
The unofficial cocktail of the Masters Tournament, the Azalea is named after the stunning pink flowers that bloom at Augusta. Made with vodka or gin, lemon juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine for color, the Azalea is a cocktail that exudes sophistication and elegance - similar to Golfabella’s iconic “Azalea” dress that pays homage to the flower. Imagine sipping on an Azalea while wearing the Azalea in Passionate Pink - did someone say “photo op?”
2. Gin & Tonic
It is here that simple meets stimulating. Gin, tonic water, and lime garnish effortlessly blend together to create flavor that will invigorate your taste buds. This cocktail is especially suitable for those who prefer a bright and zesty flavor as opposed to something that is rather sweet.
3. Whiskey Sour
As classic and timeless as the Golfabella designs themselves, a whiskey sour is a must-have when you reach the 19th hole. Notes of caramel and vanilla in the whiskey make themselves present amongst a mixture of lemon juice and simple syrup, all served with an orange wedge for that extra burst of citrus flavor.
4. The John Daly
The name “John Daly” speaks for itself with this cocktail. Named after the professional golfer, the John Daly takes an elevated approach to the classic spiked Arnold Palmer. The blend of sweet tea, lemonade, and vodka creates a mouth-watering beverage that tastes anything but alcoholic, which is perfect if you’re not big on the taste of alcohol itself.
5. The Transfusion
Earning the title of “golf’s greatest drink,” the Transfusion cocktail is a staple when it comes to post-game libations. This four-ingredient beverage consists of vodka, ginger ale, Concord grape juice, and lime juice. Pair it with your favorite Golfabella staples (may we suggest the Sleeveless Dress from our Signature Collection?) and you’ll be “cheers”-ing like a pro.
The 19th hole can be the perfect place to relax, unwind, and connect with fellow golfers. In the spirit of sophistication and professionalism, it is always important to be mindful of where you are and who you’re engaging with. To enjoy responsibly, be sure to hydrate with water in between these delicious cocktails and opt for healthy and replenishing snacks so that you aren’t indulging on an empty stomach. While it is important to pace yourself in this semi-professional setting, it is most important that you celebrate your success on the course and treat yourself after a hard day’s work.
