Yes, that’s right. You can now enjoy fine wine in a can. Imagine the possibilities!
It’s 10 days into Lent. I’ve given up my beloved evening glass of red wine and all other caloric beverages until Easter, and I think I might be losing my mind.
Since I can’t drink, naturally I’ve been daydreaming of all the delicious beverages I will imbibe on Easter Sunday and thereafter.
This week, I’ve rounded up my favorite on-course golf drinks. They are perfect for sipping in the cart and one will even stand up to a beating in your golf bag. Happy drinking!
When you want to keep it classy:
Wine in a can.
If you are a fan of of the TV show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, then you already understand the multitude of benefits that wine in a can provides. If you need some convincing, check out this video.
Drinking wine out of a can is conducive to my violent hand gestures – Mac
Oregon-based Underwood Wines makes Pinot Noir, Rosé, and Pinot Gris in a can. Yes, please!
When it’s Masters weekend:
The Georgia Peach
The perfect drink for hitting the links on Masters weekend. Ask the bartender to make you and your buddies a Georgia Peach to go and you’ll instantly be transported to Magnolia Lane. Smell those Azaleas!
SoCo, peach schnapps, and a little bit of OJ are all you need to make this drink. It’s a hard one to screw up, making it the perfect cocktail to order at the golf course, when the guy or gal making your drink isn’t exactly a mixologist. The recipe can be found @ Tipsy Bartender.
When you’ve thrown in the towel:
Long Island Iced Tea
We’ve all been there. A devastating front 9, and now you just need to drink your woes away and get tanked for the next 2 hours. Enter the long island iced tea. The genius of this drink is its potency. One is all you need to drown your sorrows.
A classic recipe can be found at This Girl Walks into a Bar.
Just make sure you call someone to take you home. 🙂
When it’s hotter than a billy goat’s a$$ in a pepper patch:
Hefe Shandy Beer.
Sometimes you just need a cold one. I’m not a big beer drinker, but often the golf course demands a light, refreshing beer that won’t drag you down or dehydrate you.
I will begrudging drink a PBR or Bud Light if I must (as shown above), but my favorite on course beer is the Widmer Brothers Hefe Shandy. Load up the cooler with ice and a few of those! Party time!
When you’re sneaking drinks in for the entire foursome:
I hate the name, but I love the drink. This stuff is amazing. Make it at home, then bring the jug for all to enjoy!
Watermelon vodka. Coconut rum. Pink lemonade mix. Fresh strawberries. Triple sec. Oh. M. G!
The original recipe can be found here.
When you get a hole-in one:
A hole-in-one calls for a special and memorable drink. Why not drink a hole-in-one to mark the occasion?! This whiskey-based cocktail is a simple drink with classic flavors of vermouth and lemon juice. The recipe can be found @ 1001 Cocktails.
