It’s been so beautiful outside and makes me think ice cold bevvies!!! One of our favorites is Arnold Palmers, named after the famous golfer.  It is blend of equal parts lemonade and iced tea. In the southern USA they call it sweet tea. Here is the simple recipe without alcohol in it. On Pinterest, I noticed that bourbon is often added to the recipe. Spiked or Tipsy Arnold Palmers.

Lemonade:

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 1/2 cups lemon juice (about 8 lemons)

  • 5 cups cold water

  • Take one cup of sugar and one cup of water and boil, stirring occasionally, cooking until sugar is dissolved to make simple syrup. Remove from heat.
    Pour lemon juice into a 2-quart or larger pitcher. Add cold water.

Iced Tea:

  • 5 tea bags (I used English Breakfast)
  • 5 cups of boiling water

 

Let steep for 4-6 minutes. Pull out tea bags and there we go!

 

Mix, chill and add some bourbon for you adventurous ones out there!

Enjoy!
