We did our research as promised, and this is what we learned about the favored drink for the Master’s Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club. The signature drink is the Azalea. We created our version, Martini-style! Be sure to check our recent post on how to properly shake a martini for details on this important step.

Shake together the following ingredients: 1 part pink lemonade 1 part canned pineapple juice 3 parts  Skyy Pineapple Vodka Enough Grenadine to color pink You can also add  in 2 parts heavy whipping cream for a creamier drink for a variety.

Again, shake with approximately 5 – 6 ice cubes per drink.  Garnish with a pineapple slice and 2 maraschino cherries on an extra-long golf tee – of course!

You can see the results of both martinis below. The martini on the left is without cream, and the martini on the right does contain the cream. You’ve been warned, though. . . This isn’t your mom’s Strawberry Quik!!

  1. Excellent recipe ladies! I mixed a batch of your Azalea for some friends, and they were a huge success.

    Keep the ideas coming!

    • Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it! If you fix it without the heavy cream, it is very low-calorie. We are going to start listing some low-calorie options in the future. We are already gearing up for our next one, so keep watching. Thanks again!

  2. Very nice…although I’m tempted to replace the cream with egg white – you’ll get the same creaminess with the extra sweetness of the cream.

    • Interesting twist and far healthier! Great thought. Thanks for the suggestion!

    • I love your idea of using egg white.

  3. The Golf Tee cocktail pick is perfect!

    • Thank you so much! We think the presentation of the drink is important, just like the taste and aroma. Glad you noticed!
