SPIRITS OF THE GAME By AZ Golf Insider Staff A local twist


Shake it up during post-round festivities with Valley of the Sun mixologist Chuck Moore’s line of low-calorie, high-quality mixers. The mixers include gun-toting green and red Bloody Mary concoctions: Verde Maria and Bloody Maria. As you might imagine, green tomatillos and Hatch chiles make up the Verde option, while ripe tomatoes and biting spice form the Bloody mix. Both are decked out in colorful Dia De Los Muertos designs by Valley artist Adam Van Slyke. Also check out other cheeky mixers like Forbidden Horchata, Strawberry Bandita and classic margarita and mojito.

> South African beauty Ernie and The Dark Knight know their wines, and they would approve of South Africa-born Nederburg’s new release of The Brew Master. Winemaker Wilhelm Pienaar creates a stunningly dark and intense Bordeaux style red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot that clubs you over the head with its concentrated aromas of red fruit, cedar, tobacco and vanilla spice, and continues on the palate with classic juicy, dark red fruit, wood and ripe tannins. Here’s your mate for the leg of lamb or crown roast.


$26 • www.nederburg.com Italian sparkler


Avoid mimosas with Ferrari Brut Tento DOC, an Italian sparkling beauty interestingly made from 100 percent Chardonnay rather than typical Glera or Prosecco, that is aged for two years. The wine is larger and softer than many Italian sparklers, with a fruity nose of flowers and golden apple, and a ripe fruit and bread palate. Amazing with a soft- cheese course.

Under my Thumb


Pair Chaco Flaco mixers with Thumb Butte Distillery vodka, produced in Prescott. Made with a blend of 80 percent Italian red wheat and 20 percent Polish potatoes, this top-shelf vodka makes a superior base for all vodka drinks, including zesty Bloody Mary’s. Or, chill it down for martinis like those you will find at The Gallery Golf Club in Marana, and savor this smooth and slightly sweet elixir. For those who prefer 100 percent potato vodka, Thumb Butte produces that as well.

16 | AZ GOLF Insider | PREVIEW 2016 Drink to win


Show your competitive streak on and off the course by pouring the 2013 edition of True Grit Reserve Petite Syrah from venerable producer Parducci of Mendocino, Calif. This is the 10th release of this bold, inky wine that indeed speaks of true grit. Heady aromas of ripe fruit, white pepper and vanilla are followed by an intense rush of fresh blackberry, dark chocolate, pepper and caramel. Treat your group to steaks with this robust red.
