Daly angered over cocktail bearing his name

A cocktail named for John Daly that features sweet tea, lemonade and vodka apparently has been around for awhile, but now it's turning up on bar menus and Daly doesn't much appreciate it.

One of his followers on Twitter alerted Daly to a Minneapolis restaurant that featured a John Daly on its menu, made with Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Flavored Vodka "and our own muddled lemonade!"

A new chain of restaurants in Southern California, the Lazy Dog Cafe, offers on its drink menu the "John Daily," featuring Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Flavored Vodka and fresh pink lemonade, "giving this refreshing cocktail a bad boy bite," the menu states.

Daly responded with these Twitter posts:

"For all my fans out there hittin the bars & events I'm lookin for your help--ANY PRINTED MENUS, BANNERS OR ADS promoting the 'John Daly' drink--Can you please bring to my attention with a pic and/or a tweet of the bar location & brand of sweet tea! Thanks for lookin out!"
