When suffering through the hot days of Summer, nothing is more refreshing to me than an icy glass of Lemonade Tea, also known as the Arnold Palmer. It’s easy to make and I’ve never known a tea drinker who turned down a glass.
Some serve this tea drink already mixed in a 50/50 proportion like the recipe below. Others bring separate pitchers of lemonade and tea to the table, then let their guests create their own mix according to preference. Either way, it’s a winning drink!
Lemonade Tea Makes 2 quarts.
4 cups prepared lemonade
4 cups prepared strong black tea
Lemon slices or wedges
Fresh mint leaves, optional
1. In a large pitcher, pour tea into lemonade and refrigerate until ready to serve.
2. When serving, pour over ice and garnish with lemon slices and mint leaves.
