Arnold Palmers

by Jessica on March 26, 2009

Texas weather’s been up and down the past few days (who’s surprised??), so when I came home from work this afternoon, I wanted something ‘Springy’ to drink. I remembered hearing Paula Deen talk about customers ordering the ‘Arnold Palmer’ at her restaurant… 1/2 Sweet Tea and 1/2 Lemonade… which is apparently Mr. Palmer’s favorite drink. This sounded perfect, so I got right to it! ­čÖé

1-1/2 c fresh lemon juice
5 c cold water
Garnishes: lemon slices, fresh mint sprigs

Stir together sugar and boiling water until sugar dissolves. Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice and cold water. Chill 8 hours. Garnish, if desired.
