Make an Arnold Palmer
This golfer inspired beverage is made with two drink classics: a combination of iced tea and lemonade with a slightly sweet lemony tea blend that has a refreshing taste (even for the fall).
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.
