WATCH: Making Masters-Inspired Azalea Cocktails at the Colonial Inn

During one of golf's biggest weekends, a taste of Augusta National here in Concord.

The Liberty restaurant at Concord’s Colonial Inn is teeing up a taste of Augusta National in honor of the Masters--perhaps the PGA’s most famous golf tournament--opening today in Georgia.

Azalea cocktails and a peach cobbler tart are among the Masters-inspired items joining the menu from today, April 11, through the tournament’s final round on Sunday.

Liberty’s chef Cassie Pianowski will be serving up a taste of the south in the form of a peach cobbler tart featuring flambéed peaches, orange graham cracker ice cream and cinnamon crème. The restaurant will also offer an azalea cocktail, which combines gin, lemon and pineapple juice and a splash of grenadine.

Inside the Forge Tavern, bartenders like Emily Roux will be mixing up azalea cocktails using gin, lemonade, pineapple juice and grenadine and serving them in glasses garnished with special golf flags and edible flowers.

“It is good,” said Roux of the cocktail, which will cost you $11. “It’s very light, and the gin isn’t overly powerful.”

In addition to the Masters-inspired food and drink, Liberty will offer locals a place to watch the PGA’s first major tournament of the year.
