This Refreshing Arnold Palmer Beverage is very thirst-quenching. It is adult-friendly and made with unsweetened tea, lemonade, and bourbon whiskey. Many think an Arnold Palmer is half tea and half lemonade. Actually, there is more tea than lemonade.
This drink is the perfect thirst-quenching drink on those hot summer days. Pour this delicious tea and lemonade combo over a glass of ice and garnish with a lemon slice. The whiskey gives it that extra zip. Of course, it is also delicious without the alcohol.
Anyone who knows me or has followed my blog knows that normally if Im having an adult beverage, it includes tequila. Like the Refreshing Tequila Sunrise, Skinny Blackberry Margarita, or The Best Skinny Jalapeno Margarita. However, this Arnold Palmer was a great change of pace.
The drink was named after the very famous PGA golfer Arnold Palmer. Seems the iced tea, lemonade combo was his personal favorite. Adding the whiskey makes it very popular on the 19th hole.
Absolutely! It is delicious with or without the whiskey.
Yes, I'm sure vodka or tequila would also taste great.
Sure if you like your tea sweetened go for it.
