Knock It Stiff – The “G&T”

We are excited to bring you this new recurring blog post from our friend Lafferty Daniels. Like Tommy Fleetwood’s father said: “my driving is garbage, my irons are garbage and my short game is garbage. Apart from that, I’m great. I can do the 19th hole pretty well.” After all, who doesn’t enjoy a good cocktail when or after you’re golfing! Enjoy.

Knock It Stiff – The 19th Hole – The “G&T”

-L. Daniels

If you are 21 please continue reading – if not check back for our next post.  If you are 21, as always please drink responsibly and don’t ruin a great round by driving drunk.  Take a cab or ask a sober buddy for a ride.

Here at Golf Starz we take golf serious, but for those who have followed us since the beginning, you know we take the 19th hole serious too.  This is the first installment of a new weekly post highlighting some of our favorite drinks we like to enjoy after our round.

This week we would like to highlight the classic British drink in honor of The Open…the G &T.  Since these colors don’t run, I decided to add a little American twist by using local American made Gin from our friends over at Watershed Distillery in Columbus, Ohio.  For those who are not familiar with Watershed, go and check them out. Also, I had the honor of meeting Tom Watson last year when the Senior Tour played the U.S. Senior Open at Scioto Country Club in Columbus and what better weekend to break out my signed coaster.

Check out our twist on a classic G&T below:

Take your favorite glass, doesn’t matter and fill it to the brim with ice…

Add 1 and ½ oz of Watershed Distillery Four Peel Gin (any gin will do)…

Fill the rest of the glass with tonic water (we used Boylan Heritage Tonic, also check out Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. Small Batch Tonic)…

We added a twist with a couple dashes of Fee Brothers Grapefruit Bitters…

Garnish it with a lime or lemon…

And Enjoy.

Again, drink responsibly/don’t drink and drive and always tip your bartender or cart girl…don’t be that guy/girl.
