If I had to pick one beverage to enjoy all summer (besides rosé, of course!), I’d go for a bottomless Arnold Palmer. The half iced-tea, half lemonade drink is light, bright, refreshing, and tasty. Plus, you can change it up with all sorts of different flavored teas—peach, mango, green, mint, or even unsweetened black.
Tomorrow is National Iced Tea Day and I’m celebrating early with a twist on my favorite summer sipper. I like my refreshments super-cold, so I always fill my glass (or better yet, my mason jar) with lots of ice. But, this time, instead of using plain ole water, I’m freezing lemonade into oversized cube—and adding blueberries and mint. Once they’re ready to go, I’ll pop a few of these big babies into a tall, cold glass of Trader Joe's Moroccan Mint iced tea. Add a cute chevron straw, a fresh sprig of mint, and maybe a lemon wedge, and you’ve got yourself the perfect seasonal mocktail—although come to think of it, a little booze (perhaps some vodka) would make a delightful after 5 PM addition to this recipe.
Of course, if you prefer your Arnold Palmer heavier on the lemonade, you could reverse your recipe, and make iced-tea cubes.
This drink, not only epitomizes summer, it tastes delicious… and it’s so pretty!
