Do you know how the Arnold Palmer drink got its name?  So, back in 1960 when the pro-golfer was competing in the US Open at the Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, CO, Mr. Palmer  walked up to the bar, and ordered a half lemonade, half iced tea, which he loved to drink at home.  Shortly, a woman in the bar overheard Mr. Palmer’s drink order and specifically asked for a “Palmer,” wanting the half iced tea, half lemonade drink.  Immediately, the drink name stuck, Arnold Palmer went on to golf greatness, and ever since then “half and half” is now known as an “Arnold Palmer.”

Whatever you might call it – a “half and half” or an “Arnold Palmer”, this drink is amazing, especially if you love a sweet iced tea with lots of lemon freshness!  Wonderful on a hot day, or whenever you’re looking to quench your thirst, this drink is great to have on hand all summer long!

Forget the powdered mix or canned stuff, making a pitcher of Arnold Palmer is simple with just a few fresh ingredients.  For the lemonade portion, you’ll need lemon juice (fresh or bottled), sugar and water.  For the tea portion, all you need is a few tea bags, and water.  Add fresh lemon slices and some sprigs of mint for a gorgeous summertime drink!

Want to turn this drink into a cocktail?  Pour the iced tea over ice, and add your preference of either sweet tea flavored vodka or bourbon (one, 1 oz. shot of either, per glass.)
