There is something about having an ice-cold refreshing spirit on a hot summer day that just feels great. For some golfers, it’s their favorite pass time, whether they shoot better than a 90 or not. But that begs the question “What are the best drinks to get at the golf course?” So, what’s the answer? Here’s what hardcore and casual golfers like to drink when playing 18-holes.
This classic summertime drink is a favorite among many people. Nothing quite hits like a refreshing mojito on a hot day. This cocktail is rum-based and includes mint leaves, lime juice, soda water, and sugar. It’s not only great on the golf course, but a perfect poolside beverage on a toasty afternoon.
Spiked Arnold Palmer
An Arnold Palmer is a golf course classic. Named after the legendary golfer, its main ingredients are sweet tea and lemonade. If you are looking for a little extra kick, order it spiked. Not to be confused with the canned “Spiked Arnold Palmer” a spiked version of the drink typically adds vodka. It makes for a delightful drink when the temperature starts to rise.
A classic brunch beverage, Bloody Mary’s are a time-honored drink served in nearly every clubhouse. This signature cocktail contains a few fun ingredients that really bring out the flavor. Most Bloody Mary’s will have vodka, tomato juice (V8), horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, celery stock, tabasco sauce, and black pepper.
Last but not least, there’s always beer. It might be the easiest drink to imbibe on the golf course. Served by the clubhouse, cart vendors, or miraculously tucked away in your golf bag, beer is the typical go-to beverage. Beer comes in a variety of styles like stouts, IPAs, pilsners, Hefeweizens, and light-beers. Whatever you’re in the mood for, there is always a selection of ice-cold beer to help you cool off during the summer months.
So, if you are deciding on what to drink the next time you play golf, there are plenty of great choices. It’s one of the best ways to cool off when it’s the middle of summer without cloud coverage. When you are trying to stay cool, don’t forget to wear a golf polo and hat that’s made for the heat.
