Azalea Cocktails (The Masters Signature Cocktail)

Azalea Cocktails is a pineapple juice-based cocktail and the official drink of the Masters. It’s a refreshing cocktail that can be enjoyed any time of the year!

I’ve turned the signature drink into a batch cocktail ready for your annual at-home Masters Viewing Party!

The signature cocktail of the Masters Golf Tournament is the Azalea Cocktail. It’s got lemon juice, pineapple juice, a splash of grenadine, vodka or gin. All poured into a cocktail shaker, and mixed to the perfect pink hue.

My personal preference is the vodka over the gin.

The signature flower of the masters is the azalea. Augusta National Golf Club has the most amazing varieties of azaleas, and they’re in full bloom during the tournament. It’s one of my top reasons for watching the professional golf tournament! I’m not a golfer, but the beautiful azalea bushes and lovelt scenery make for one great weeknd of the most famous holes.

How to Make an Azalea Cocktail 

First, let’s make the garnish for the single cocktail. 

When I host my at-home watch party, this is a task I can do a couple of days ahead of time. I’ll “string up” the garnish picks and store them in the fridge until I’m ready to serve.

I ordered these bamboo picks on Amazon and have used them many times! At this same party, I also had them out for a “Pickle Pick.” We had many pickles out, and people stacked their picks full of delicious pickles.

You’ll add a slice of orange and a maraschino cherry to your pick. 

With the orange slice, insert the pick on one side, add the cherry, then “sew” the other side of the orange slice in. This looks so pretty, don’t you think?!

Other garnishes you could add would be a lemon slice or a mint sprig.

Now, let’s mix up the cocktail. The recipe card gives you the measurements for a batch cocktail, and the notes include the measurements for the single cocktail, too!

The fruity sweetness of this cocktail comes from pineapple juice and lemon juice.

For the batch cocktail, I used Simple Lemonade and pineapple juice.

I’ll add in the grenadine and give everything a big stir.

Serving this Cocktail

Just before serving, I’ll pour in the vodka.

If you know someone in your party who likes a gin-based drink, leave the liquor out and do a “Add Your Own Liquor” bar.

It’s a great mocktail, too!

I served my Azalea Cocktails out of this gorgeous Glass Drink Dispenser! But, y’all! Because the lemonade and the pineapple juice had pulp, it would come out of the dispenser… So, I stuck a long ladle in the carafe and called it a day.

Since I had ordered “A Taste of the Masters,” I used the frosted cups. However, this cocktail is great served in a coupe glass. 

Save this recipe for your summertime entertaining and for your Masters Party 2025!
