Red Rocks Country Club’s On the Green

The official poolside drink of summer

While the golf world eagerly awaits the winner of the green jacket at Augusta this month, members of Morrison’s Red Rocks Country Club are also counting down the days to swim season and the poolside specialty, On the Green.

Most popular during the club’s Friday Night Happy Hours between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the refreshing concoction represents the most memorable of the myriad creative food and drink specials that accompany the live musical entertainment and dazzling views of Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The weekly gathering draws members and guests by the hundreds.

“An On the Green goes perfectly with a hot day on the course or a fun night by the pool,” says Red Rocks Membership Director Ali Canyon. “It’s as quenching as it is colorful—like a tropical breeze in the scenic mountain landscape.”

On the Green Mix:

• 2 oz. vodka
• 1/2 oz. blue curacao
• 1 oz. orange juice
• 1 oz. pineapple juice

Combine ingredients in a shaker and pour over ice.
