We are thrilled to announce our Azalea Golf Ball Marker collection is here!
Many of you are probably familiar with the Azalea and its history with golf, as over 1,600 of them flank the 13th hole at Augusta National and flower from March - mid-April. They look so stunning during the Master's tournament that many TV viewers question whether they are real. There is also a rumor that Augusta National packs the azaleas with ice for them to bloom perfectly during the tournament. Of course, this is entirely false and pretty infeasible if you think about the logistics of packing thousands of plants with ice. But, rest assured, mother nature usually has the final say; during the 2022 Masters, over 40% of them were unfortunately wiped out by a frost.
The white, pink, and purple azaleas backdrop many famous golf photos. And we are so excited to have them represented in our birdie girl golf women's ball marker collection. Available in pink, purple, or white with gold plating, they also look beautiful on our ball marker necklaces. But wait, there is more...
Did you know there is a famous cocktail served at the Masters called the Azalea? We figured no azalea collection would be complete without a sweet ball marker replica cocktail. Don't worry; no azaleas were harmed in making these cocktails. Azaleas are very poisonous and not part of the drink. But their namesake cocktail features grenadine to replicate their beautiful color. We use dragon fruit syrup instead to take it to the next level. It is a refreshing, tropical citrus cocktail perfect for any 19th-hole celebration. Here is the recipe:
- 1 part lemon juice
- 2 part vodka
- 2 part pineapple juice
- Dash of dragon fruit syrup until desired azalea color is achieved.
- Slash of Prosecco
- Put all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, shake up and service over ice. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired.
