 What’s A Masters Azalea Cocktail? 

The Masters Azalea cocktail is the signature drink made famous in Augusta, GA by the Masters golf tournament. The pink signature cocktail was created to emulate the beautiful pink azaleas on the 13th green at Augusta National. It has become the official drink of the Masters by locals and patrons alike. 

Why is it called an Azalea drink?

When visiting Augusta, Georgia, in spring, vibrant-colored flowers adorn our yards. The same holds true for the Augusta National Golf Course. The meticulously manicured course is truly a sight to behold. It’s no wonder that a cocktail was crafted to capture the spirit of the stunning pink azaleas found on the 13th green.

The 13th hole is named Azalea due to the cascade of beautiful azalea bushes that surround the green when in full bloom each spring during the Masters.  Cheers to pink azaleas!

Powder Cocktail Mixer Ingredients

  • Lemonade: You will need to buy a pink lemonade powdered drink mix. I purchased the Country Time brand; however, there might be other brands in your local grocery store. 
  • Pomegranate: The original Azalea Cocktail has grenadine syrup, which is made from pomegranate juice and sugar. We are going to use freeze-dried pomegranate juice powder. It’s pretty tart, so we are adding a bit more sugar to our powdered drink mix. I purchased Microingredients Pomegranate Powder.
  • Sugar: We will need to sweeten this drink a bit with white sugar to make it taste like an azalea drink.
