Make an Arnold Palmer
This golfer inspired beverage is made with two summer drink classics: a combination of iced tea and lemonade with a slightly sweet lemony tea blend that has a refreshing taste.
The start of the official drink name was supposedly from a woman ordering the drink at a golf club asking for ‘that Arnold Palmer drink’. The famous golfer's preference was so well-known, he was said to order a ‘Mr. Palmer’ at golf country clubs when requesting the drink and a legend was blended.
Make it boozy: Fill a glass with ice and pour one part sweet tea vodka over the top (Tip: Used a one-ounce shot glass). Next add three parts lemonade and garnish with a lemon wedge.
ProTip: Also called "The Arnie," be sure to serve this iconic drink in a tall Collins glass full of ice.

In efforts to mitigate growing health concerns, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has issued an executive order to shelter-in-place effective at 6 p.m. on April 3 through April 30, 2020. This executive order and the City of Augusta have closed all restaurant dining facilities, bars, and indoor recreational areas, including salons and gymnasiums. Local restaurants are still providing delivery options and curbside pickup so be sure to order your favorite Augusta dish. Questions regarding this executive order? Call the governor's toll-free hotline at 1-844-442-2681.
