John Daly wants you to know his "official drink" is finally here -- and it's not for the meek

October 12, 2017

Have you ever ordered a "John Daly"? You probably have, even if you don't realize it. That's because over the years, an "Arnold Palmer" with vodka has evolved into a cocktail named after the two-time major champ. And now, Daly is finally cashing in on that fact with the release of his "official" drink. Smart move, JD.

Notice that hashtag, #8percent. With that alcohol by volume, this drink isn't for the meek.

You're probably wondering, What took him so long?! But actually, this is Daly's second attempt at launching his own branded beverage. In 2012, Daly released a similar line of drink a couple years after getting upset that restaurants were using his name to sell the cocktails without his authorization.

The new drink is available on Daly's website and in select liquor stores. Just a hunch, but it will also be served in his new steakhouse in Arkansas. From opening restaurants to product launches to making cuts on the PGA Tour, it's been a busy few weeks for Daly. Sounds like a celebratory cocktail is in order.
