How I Argaux: Host a Master’s Par-Tee
There’s something about watching golf. For me, it’s reminiscent of Sundays with my Dad. I’ve played golf ever since I was little girl, but it wasn’t until I started playing socially with friends and family that I was able to appreciate the sport for what it is. It’s a walk in the park – Time spent in beautiful places practicing your follow through or keeping your head down. The analogies connecting the game of golf with life are endless. We need a bottle of Par Fore The Course to dissect them all! That’s for another time. For now, we’ll talk about #HowIArgaux during golf season and the Master’s Golf Tournament. Host a party, of course. A Master’s Par-Tee.
There are three things you’ll need when hosting a Master’s Par-Tee:
- A Par Fore The Course Wine Bar
- Azalea Cocktails
- Pimento Cheese (Sandwiches)
So, what’s an Azalea cocktail? Augusta National Golf Club has over 30 varieties of Azalea flowers and they happen to bloom throughout the tournament each year. The cocktail is both beautiful in color and refreshing in flavor. Here’s a spin on the recipe:
Ingredients for your Azalea Cocktail:
- 2 oz. lemon juice
- 4 oz. vodka
- ¼ ounce grenadine
- Lemon wedge
*traditionally, this cocktail is made with 2 oz. pineapple, this is a modified version!In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, lemon juice, and grenadine with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge and serve.
Arguably more important than the booze at your Master’s Par-Tee is this Pimento Cheese recipe.
Ingredients for your Pimento Cheese:
- 3 cups grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp. yellow onion
- 2 tbsp. pimentos
- 1 jalapeño, chopped
Combine everything in a mixing bowl or food processor. This can be enjoyed as a dip, or better yet used to create the closest thing to the famous Pimento Cheese sandwiches served at the Master’s Golf Tournament in Augusta!
All the above is sure to result in a hole-in-one Master’s Par-Tee!
