John Daly Would Like You To Stop Ordering John Daly's
By Kickntrue on 9/27/10
John Daly has started a campaign with the help of his Twitter followers to stop bars and restaurants from having a "John Daly" drink on their menu.
A John Daly is an alcoholic mixed drink consisting of lemonade, iced tea and vodka, or, alternatively, lemonade and sweet tea vodka. The drink is based on the non-alcoholic Arnold Palmer, consisting of iced tea and lemonade. Both drinks are named after professional golfers; the John Daly name is a tongue-in-cheek nod to Daly's problems with alcohol abuse.While it's pretty awesome to have a food or drink item named after you, it's easy to see why Daly doesn't like this. I'm wondering though if it's something he's actually making bigger by making a big deal about it?! I can't say I walk into too many places with "John Daly" actually typed into the menu- and I'm in the south where tea rules the drinking world.
The "real" reason this is happening... (all sic'd)
when distributors are putting their Vodka Bottle Label on Point of Sale w/ my name & w/ out authorization in order to sell it- TradeMark InfrinAhh... Now I get it...

Give him a piece of the business and I'm SURE he would be OK with it...just a thought!!!
Well it's true. I mean it's not like they've changed his name to be funny about it. Not like say, a bathroom marketed golf reading material called "John Daily" or something. or hey, TIGER WOULD beer? that's legal. They're not even trying though and with his background, yea i can see why he'd be upset.
Iced tea and vodka? Yuck! That'll die out on it's own soon enough.
@merlin - the icepick is a great drink! i used to drink them all the time in summer.
i guess he doesnt want the drink to become his legacy.
I would sure like to see him on TV a couple more times come Sunday though...

Instead of chocolate candies n stuff, my mom used to buy us "Tiger's milk bars" when we were kids.
Don' wanna think about it.
Damn! I never knew you could order a drink named after my favorite alcoholic...er... pro golfer. Now I will order it whenever I can!
Thanks! Now that I know about it, I'll try it out.
This sounds good.
so someone took a can of Arizona Arnold Palmer and added vodka. seems like a good idea but i think run, espeically cap morgan, would taste better. not that i drink rum...i'm just saying..lol
I like your rum idea. I've been desperate before when there was no suitable mixer in the house and made drinks with some dumb things, like kool aid. Know what you get when you mix orange juice, vodka, and milk of magnesia?...A Phillips Screwdriver.
I know John is looking for New sponsors !! His Facebook page tells the story..Here he Goes !!
