The Snedeker Snickers Cocktail - Cheers, Not Tears.

Brandt Snedeker has put a tearful, memorable Masters behind him, and flown on down to Hilton Head for the Verizon Heritage Championship.

The adorable golf guy with the cherubic looks, broke a few hearts when he cried into his towel on Sunday night. But he's gotten over it, and said today that he feels "refreshed and excited" and ready for another competition.

He definitely left an impression on us during this Masters. Probably more than any other player this year. His extraordinary golf, and his tearful reaction when he ultimately faltered, will be remembered by many...for a long time.


And believe it or not...this young man already has a cocktail named after him. Remember last fall when we did the Fedex Cup cocktail Contest?
Well if you do, you might remember that the winner was The Snedeker Snickers Cocktail dedicated to Brandt and submitted by a proud Nashville, TN, Grandmother, Abby Clausen.

"Brandt is a sweet and delightful young man" Abbey wrote, "...and this drink matches his fun loving personality". Abby then told an endearing tale of Brandt signing autographs at an area tournament and joking with her grandson, who at that moment, decided to pursue golf seriously. Now he's co-captain of his high school golf team.

So The Snedeker Snickers Cocktail won for it's imaginative combination of ingredients and for it's compelling connection to the golfer who inspired it. And now I feel like we all know a bit more about Brandt than we did last fall. I don't know about you, but I want to try that drink.
