The “Calamity Jane,” featuring Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and “Finale Fizz,” featuring Maestro Dobel Blanco Tequila boast one-of-a-kind recipes and include select Coca-Cola products.

Fans can enjoy both cocktails at several of the tournament’s fan activation areas, including the Tito’s Stillhouse Lounge, located near the 15th green, and The Deck presented by Maestro Dobel, located across the lake from the Practice Range. To keep the cocktail cold throughout the day, fans can choose to have their beverage poured into a special TOUR Championship Yeti tumbler.
