Arnold Palmer Recipe

Beat Scorching Summer Heat With an Arnold Palmer

It always baffles me that citrus season falls during the darkest days of Winter, as I can't think of a more quintessentially Summer drink than lemonade or its tea-spiked cousin the Arnold Palmer. Mellow and refreshing, it's the perfect beverage for poolside sipping, alfresco dinners, or even packed into a bottle for a romantic picnic.

So cut your seasonal eating some slack and make like the eponymous golfer by cooling down from within with each sip of this plucky beverage.

Arnold Palmer Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 1/4 cups unsweetened iced black tea
  2. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  3. 1/2 cup simple syrup
  4. 3/4 cup water
  5. Lemon wheels, for garnish

Directions

  1. Stir together the iced tea, lemon juice, simple syrup, and water in a pitcher.
  2. Pour over ice and garnish each glass with a lemon wheel.

Notes:

  • Like many beverages, this is a very loose recipe and can be adjusted to personal taste. If you'd like a supertart version, simply increase the lemon juice to 3/4 cup or, for a more mellow blend, increase the water to one cup.
  • To make a John Daly, replace part of the water with vodka, to taste.
