A John Daly consists of lemonade, iced tea, and vodka. It is named after the American golfer John Daly. The drink is an alcoholic version of the Arnold Palmer, which is named after an American golfer, as well. The cocktail was originally made popular at the Whiskey Creek Golf Course in Fort Myers, Florida during the 2005 Dirty Gator Open by bartender, Ian Forret.
