Arnold Palmer was a championship golfer in the late 50’s and 60’s. His sporting legacy aside, the thing he’s famous for around here is his namesake beverage. Here’s my take:
The Ultimate Arnold Palmer
8 cups double strength Brewed Tea
6 cups Lemonade (recipe to follow)
Zest and Juice of 8 large Lemons
3 cups Sugar
6 cups Water
Stir all ingredients in a large sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved, then allow to cool to room temperature. Strain then refrigerate. Serve over ice.
But if making Arnold Palmer’s…
Strain and combine with the brewed tea. Refrigerate until ready to serve over ice.
Pssst… if you add an ounce or two of lemon vodka to your Arnold Palmer… it’s called a John Daly
