Grip It & Rip It: John Daly Releases New Alcoholic Drink

It’s no secret that John Daly loves his alcohol. He was notorious for playing rounds of golf hung over and admitted once that he had actually drank in the middle of a PGA Tour event.

He’s like the Boston Red Sox of the PGA Tour.

“It was so slow and I played the back nine first,” Daly said. “I think I’m two or three over. I went in the locker room and downed like five beers, and I think I shot four under on the front nine. That is the only time I know I drank during a round, and I played great. I played great that week. I finished strong.”

So it’s only fitting for Daly to make his own alcoholic beverage and sell it to the public. It’s kinda like a mixture of ‘Mike’s secret stuff’ from Space Jam and an Arnold Palmer drink but with a dash of alcohol.

A big dash of alcohol actually…each 16-ounce drink is 8% ABV (alcohol by volume).

The Grip It & Sip It comes in two flavors: Half & Half and Hard Tea. The taste and alcohol are supposed to hit you harder than a 300-yard drive. The sweet lemonade and iced tea taste make this the perfect beverage to sip on while playing on the golf course. And even if you’re not a golf fan, you can kick back and drink one (or more….probably going to be more than one actually) while you’re sitting in the hot sun by the pool or the ocean.

These tasty beverages can now be found at your local beer distributor.

So will the Grip It & Sip It drink help you blast balls down the middle of the fairway 300-plus yards? Not at all. But after having enough of those drinks you’ll forget how bad your drives are anyway.
