Arnold Palmer a True Classic

With the US Open at Merion last weekend I made up some Arnold Palmer’s from scratch. I used the lemonade recipe I posted last week and then brewed some iced tea and mixed the two. It was delicious and refreshing and made for a nice change of pace in between beers while smoking the ribs we had for dinner. With summer officially starting this weekend mix some up and enjoy!

With the weather getting nicer and summer almost here I had the urge to make lemonade this past weekend. I first learned to make lemonade out of necessity when I lived in England. To the English lemonade is a lemon flavored soda and not the refreshing summer drink we know in America. This recipe is simple but takes a bit of work to juice the lemons. To make the job easier I would highly recommend buying a hand held lemon press. This drink is very refreshing and hits the spot on any warm summer day. Drink it by itself or mix it with some iced tea to make up a nice Arnold Palmer. Enjoy!
