Fresh Squeezed John Daly Recipe

fresh squeezed John Daly Recipe

Tip: Men's shirts make the best coverups and are usually more fun than the options available to women! 

If you're looking for a delicious, easy-to-make cocktail, look no further than the John Daly. If you are not familiar, it's Arnold Palmer's boozy counterpart. We've made these all week here at the lake because it's the perfect refreshing cocktail to cool off in the mid-day Georgia heat. 

We make a different cocktail each year.. some are more extravagant than others (like last year's Georgia Peach Bellini), but this year's is simple and quick! 

I don't drink vodka (I'm a gin girl) because I don't like the taste, but I do make some exceptions such as Moscow Mules and John Daly's where you can't really taste the vodka. This would also be a great drink for someone that just turned 21 and hasn't decided what they like because it's mild and refreshing. 

The recipe is super simple. You can make it easiest by buying lemonade and just adding in sweet tea vodka such as Sweet Carolina or Firefly, and voila! However, we like to spice it up a bit. 

We followed Paula Deen's recipe for fresh squeezed lemonade which you can find here. It's delicious on its own. For a nonalcoholic drink, try adding club soda and mint or basil. It's super refreshing! 

Anyway, after you make the lemonade, pour two ounces (shots) of sweet tea vodka in a shaker with ice, also add a piece of lemon and some lemonade and then shake vigorously. Pour over ice in a fun glass, garnish with a lemon slice and you're all set!
