The crowds at the Waste Management Phoenix Open are traditionally the wildest on the PGA Tour. A new adult beverage being introduced this week certainly won’t change that.
MillerCoors and AriZona are debuting a drink at TPC Scottsdale and John Daly probably isn’t going to be too thrilled about it. Arnold Palmer Spiked Half & Half is exactly what it sounds like, a half lemonade-half iced tea mix (named after the golf legend) with alcohol added. And having tried it, I can confirm it’s pretty darn tasty.
Arnold Palmer Spiked Half & Half contains 5 percent alcohol per volume, 220 calories per 12 ounces and no carbonation. Similar to other hard teas, the drink is considered a flavored malt beverage. The beverage is being released at this week's tournament, but don't worry, it will be available nationally shortly after the tournament concludes.
In October, John Daly -- whose name has long been unofficially associated with an Arnold Palmer mixed with alcohol -- announced the release of his “Grip It & Sip It” hard iced tea and lemonade concoction. Daly’s drink has a leg up in the alcohol per volume category at 8 percent, but we’re guessing he doesn’t have quite the distribution as beverage titans MillerCoors and AriZona. Sorry, JD.
