In a recent issue of GOLF Magazine, a Sports Illustrated publication, there is an article titled “Give Your Booze A Boost.” The article breaks down four popular cocktails and discusses what ingredients you can add to them to make them even more enjoyable. The article also features Miguel Ángel Jiménez. Apparently he always caps off a round with a glass of Rioja. I knew I liked him!
The drinks listed include:
- Make Your Arnold Palmer with… bai Antioxidant Infusions – The bais is low in calories and is loaded with antioxidants that help repair cell damage from exercise and being in the sun. It’s pretty much always sunny in Scottsdale. Maybe I should try some!
- Make Your Margarita with… EBOOST Acai Pom – It’s sugar free… Need I say more? This stuff is loaded with vitamins C, D, and B12. I already take B12 every morning, but a little more in my cocktail wouldn’t hurt.
- Make Your Piña Colada with… Vita Coco Coconut Water – I would never order this in the first place… So let’s move on.
- Make Your Cape Codder with… Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice – I used to drink vodka and cranberry juice, but I would always buy the low calories stuff. Hard to do that at a bar, but still. Funny story… Until reading this post, I had no idea what a Cape Codder was. The more you know!
The article was written by a dietician, and why I applaud her efforts for trying to make my cocktail more enjoyable, but nothing beats an ice cold beer after a round of golf. She did mention to add vodka to your Arnold Palmer… But that just makes it a John Daly.
When I finish a round, if I am drinking, nothing tastes better than a Coors Light or some other domestic beer that I can chug. Most golf courses don’t have an impressive tap list, so my options are traditionally limited. Troon North Golf Club in Scottsdale does have Camelback IPA on tap. Past that, expect beers like Budweiser, Michelob Ultra and Corona.
What is your favorite drink after a round of golf?
