Arnold Palmer! The King! I hope you didn’t think I was going to discuss golf. Zzzzzz! (Sorry, Tommy!)
Maybe you have heard of Arnold Palmer. He is one of the greatest golfers of all time. I’ll give him his due, but Mr. Palmer also had a special drink that he consistently ordered while on the golf course. The drink consisting of tea and lemonade became known as the Arnold Palmer.
During the long hot days of summer, the Arnold Palmer drink is a great way to keep it cool and keep it Southern.
The recipe is pretty simple. Simply mix equal parts tea (I use a store bought gallon tea) and lemonade (I use Country Time lemonade powder mixed in a gallon of water). It cannot be simpler than this. Freshly brewed tea and hand squeezed lemonade might be fresher, but my take is just fine.
I love preparing a 2-gallon mixture and using the bee hive beverage dispenser from Pier 1.
To spice up things a bit for a summer cocktail simply add vodka or gin to taste. Cheers!
