Arnold Palmer Cocktail Recipe

Whether you’re looking for a refreshing summertime beverage or a cocktail, the Arnold Palmer is a refreshing combination of iced tea and lemonade. A simple mix created by and named after the best-known golfer, Arnold Palmer, this drink was one of his favorites. Having been popular for decades, this drink is easy to make at home and is served in many bars and restaurants. It is common for Arnold Palmer to be mistaken for a mix of tea and lemonade, but that’s not how Palmer made it. In the cocktail world, the 1:1 mix of juice and sugar (or Arnie Palmer) is a popular drink, but trying it in a three-part drink (as in this recipe) will raise your spirits. Using the 2:1 mix, you get a robust tea flavor and a sweet, tart lemonade background. There are several ways you can improve and tailor the Arnold Palmer to your taste. Prepare them with fresh ingredients, add extra flavor, or spike them with liquor. The drink is fun to sip and can be shared with family and friends.
