Go on a birdie binge at The Cooper in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

The Honda Classic is underway in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., and after one round it appears as if Tiger Woods might make the cut. That’s reason enough for a lot of golf fans to celebrate.
If you are among them, swing by The Cooper restaurant in PB Gardens, for a “Talk Birdie to Me.’’

The gin-based cocktail is a citrusy-sweet mix of fresh-squeezed juices, The Cooper’s homemade orgeat syrup, Blue Curaçao, and Velvet Falernum Liqueur. The green-hued cocktail surrounds a large ball of ice, and is served with a lemon swath and a Luxardo maraschino cherry skewered on a golf tee.
Talk Birdie to Me was inspired by bar manager Tennette Shumaker’s love of the game.
“I’m a golf fan, and I play. My goal is to get as many birdies as I can, and when I do, all I want to do is talk about it,” Shumaker said.
Here’s a look at the recipe:
1 ½ oz. Citadelle Gin
½ oz. lemon juice
¼ oz. passion fruit juice
½ oz. orgeat syrup
¼ oz. Velvet Falernum Liqueur
¼ oz. Blue Curaçao
