Happy Hour: Spiked Arnold Palmer


A little while back I talked about a delicious non-alcoholic drink that combines equal parts lemonade and iced tea for a refreshing cocktail called an Arnold Palmer (it's named after a golfer). Well my sister is a huge fan of this drink and this weekend when we were out on the town (the town being New York City of course) we tasted a wonderfully blended spiked Arnold Palmer. It was your standard combination of lemonade and iced tea only diluted with vodka and flavored with muddled mint. It was fabulous somewhere between a mojito and a long island iced tea. Blown away, I wondered why had I never thought of this before?! To experiment with this cocktail,



Spiked Arnold Palmer
Inspired by a cocktail from Lure bar

1 cup packed mint leaves, chopped
2/3-cup sugar
1-cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup freshly brewed tea, chilled
1 1/2 cups vodka
Crushed ice for serving
Fresh mint springs, optional for garnish

  1. Combine chopped mint and sugar in a large bowl or pitcher.
  2. Stir in lemon juice, iced tea, and vodka.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.
  4. Fill six 6-8 ounce festive glasses with crushed ice. Pour mixture over. Garnish with mint and lemon springs.

Serves 8.
