One of golf’s most unpredictable tournaments has let the games begin starting today through Sunday, and the action might be stressful enough that post-game relaxation requires a cocktail or two.
The Dell Match Play, a World Golf Championships event, is being hosted at the Austin Country Club on the west side of town — not far from the Hotel Granduca. That’s where golf-themed cocktails are on special through the duration of the tournament, with a happy hour at the hotel’s Visconti Ristorante & Bar from 4 to 7 p.m. tonight through Saturday offering these drinks, live music and free bites.
Here’s the menu of the golf-inspired cocktails, some of which have names or golf references that may be familiar to only diehard fans of the sport.
The Green: Crown Royal Regal Apple, sweet vermouth, simple syrup, cherry bitters
From the Rough: El Silencio Mezcal Espadin, simple syrup, fresh mango, fresh lime, chili salt
Tee It Up: Belvedere Peach Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, lemon juice, prosecco
Back 9: Martel VS Cognac, Cana Brava Rum, Grand Marnier, lemon juice
