Bottoms Up

July 04, 2004

The Arnold Palmer, a libation that's half lemonade and half iced
tea, has been championed by the man himself for three decades.
The drink, appropriately, is a little like the King: bold,
classic, caffeinated and appealing to a wide swath of people.
That got us to wondering: If other golfers had drinks named after
them, what would the ingredients be?

DRINK
The Jack Nicklaus

INGREDIENTS
Half lemonade, half iced tea and a shot of ginger ale.

WHY
Jack always has to do Arnie one better.

[DRINK]
The Tiger Woods

[INGREDIENTS]
Tap water, 30-year-old Bowmore single malt and a hint of anise.

[WHY]
It's inaccessible to most people and slightly bitter.

[DRINK]
The Vijay Singh

[INGREDIENTS]
Bottom-shelf bourbon and Diet Coke.

[WHY]
It's got a flavor you have to work hard to like and leaves an
unrelenting aftertaste.

[DRINK]
The Phil Mickelson

[INGREDIENTS]
Tonic water and three Alka-Seltzers with a vodka chaser.

[WHY]
It's a lot of foam and fizz followed by one good pop.

[DRINK]
The Ernie Els

[INGREDIENTS]
A pint of Guinness (at room temperature).

[WHY]
It's smooth and delicious but never seems to be trying too hard.

[DRINK]
The DL3

[INGREDIENTS]
A mint julep with a splash of gin on top.

[WHY]
It has a genteel Southern charm, yet makes you want to pick a
fight with any yahoo in the crowd.

[DRINK]
The Retief Goosen

[INGREDIENTS]
A glass of water.

[WHY]
It's kind of dull but also refreshing.

[DRINK]
The Paul Casey

[INGREDIENTS]
A shot of Bushmills Irish Whiskey.

[WHY]
It's small, from the U.K. and hits hard.

[DRINK]
The Michelle Wie

[INGREDIENTS]
A virgin margarita.

[WHY]
It's so unbelievably good, you can't believe there's no alcohol.

[DRINK]
The Ian Poulter

[INGREDIENTS]
A pomegranate martini with a lime-green swizzle stick in a pink
glass.

[WHY]
It's all about the latest fad.
