o, they’re just four really nice complements to golf-filled weekends. Whether you’re watching the Masters, The Open, the U.S. Open, the PGA Championship or any other tournament, the following pours—and the premium spirits in them—will pair nicely. Early (but not too early) tee times are encouraged.

Dark ’n’ Stormy Martini (above)

An elegant version of a piratical Caribbean classic, this Dark ’n’ Stormy is better if you ensure the ginger beer is very cold and the afternoon is very hot.

  • 2oz Santa Teresa dark rum
  • ½ oz fresh lime juice
  • 5 oz ginger beer

 

Pour chilled ginger beer into a martini or coupee glass with the lime juice, then float the dark rum across the top, garnish with a lime wedge and give it your best pirate’s “Arrrrr!”

Long Beach Lemonade

Sippin’ on gin & juice—with gin from Snoop Dogg himself. Indoggo gin is as clear as any other and as smooth as Snoop’s best rhymes. The seven botanicals and hint of natural fruit flavor in this gin make it a perfect complement to lemonade—and plenty more.

  • 2oz INDOGGO
  • 6oz fresh lemonade
  • Lemon slice for garnish

 

Combine INDOGGO and lemonade in an ice-filled glass and stir. Garnish with a lemon slice and you’ll be laid back, with your mind on the majors and the majors on your mind.

Dutch Mule

This twist on a Moscow Mule is made with Ketel One Vodka and adds Angostura bitters for a dash of spice. We love the taste, but we’d probably drink it just for the copper mug.

  • 1.5oz Ketel One Vodka
  • ½ oz fresh lime juice
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Top with ginger beer

 

Shake everything but the ginger beer and strain into an ice-filled copper mug. Top with the ginger beer, garnish with a lime wedge and sprig of mint, and enjoy.

Dewar’s 19 Champions Edition

The official blended Scotch whisky of the U.S. Open needs no mixers—and no excuse to pour. Whenever you’re in a major frame of mind, this expression blends double-aged grain and single malt whiskies and offers a sumptuous array of tasting notes, including honey, toffee, vanilla and ripe cherries.

With a whisky this good, the only decision is whether or not to add ice. We’d ask our caddie, but then we’d have to share…
