Looking for a great spring or summer cocktail? Here’s one that you’ll definitely want to include at your next party or gathering.
Your guests will love sipping on the official cocktail of the Masters, the Azalea.
This cocktail is a great addition to your Masters golf party menu.
Because the Masters is definitely an occasion to celebrate in our house!
It should come as no surprise that the tournament’s signature cocktail is named after the course’s famed Azalea bushes.
These historic and cherished plantings, which bloom every April throughout the lush grounds of Augusta National, create a stunning backdrop for the tournament.
As one of sport’s most traditional and cherished annual traditions, the Masters deserves a truly great cocktail.
And the Azalea certainly fits the bill.
A beautiful shade of pink, this official cocktail of the Masters is a tasty and almost perfect match for the pink Azalea blossoms that dot the landscape.
HERE ARE A FEW FUN FACTS ABOUT THE AZALEAS AT AUGUSTA NATIONAL:
- Azaleas are the state wildflower of Georgia.
- There are more than 30 different types of Azaleas on the course grounds.
- The course’s thirteenth hole, which is named Azalea, contains more than one thousand Azalea shrubs.
- Despite what you may have heard, the plants are not packed in ice to ensure they are blooming for the annual tournament, according to the August Chronicle.
WHAT FOOD IS SERVED AT THE MASTERS?
In addition to the spectacular golf and the majestic course, one of the most unique things about the Masters is the price of the food. Look at these low these concession prices:
- Sandwiches: $1.50 – $3.00
- Soda/Iced Tea: $2.00
- Beer: $5.00
- Coffee: $1.50
If you’re one of the lucky few that’s been able to snag tickets to this year’s event, congratulations.
And enjoy lots of those cheap eats in between tee shots!
If not, here’s a great cocktail (in fact its the official cocktail of the Masters) to pair with whatever your party entails.
THE OFFICIAL COCKTAIL OF THE MASTERS THE AZALEA
2 ounces lemon juice
2 ounces pineapple juice
4 ounces vodka
¼ ounce grenadine
Combine the vodka, pineapple juice, lemon juice, and grenadine in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain the contents of the shaker into an ice-filled glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge, and serve. You may also want to add a festive green and white striped straw. I also love these faux Azaleas bushes in white pots, as well as this artificial turf table runner to add to the table’s festive look!
