This one is going to be short and sweet, but I needed to get this up here before summer starts in earnest, because everyone needs to have a good, dependable iced tea recipe in their back pocket.
Now, I am a big fan of something called the Arnold Palmer, which is basically a mixture of half iced tea and half lemonade. The problem is, not everyone knows that a drink that is half iced tea and half lemonade is called an Arnold Palmer. So sometimes I order it when I am at a restaurant and they write it down like it is a perfectly normal thing to order, and sometimes they look at me like I have a screw loose somewhere. I have no earthly idea why this is called an Arnold Palmer, although I think a safe bet is that Arnold Palmer used to drink glasses of half lemonade and half iced tea?
And now that you know all that helpful background, here’s a great version of this iced tea, and adding mint into the mix makes it just about perfect. Happy lazy summer days to you.
