Arnold Palmer (drink)

An Arnold Palmer or Arnie Palmer, is a beverage consisting of half iced tea (either sweetened or unsweetened) and half lemonade. It is named for golfer Arnold Palmer and is said to be his favorite beverage. [cite web | title="Arnold Palmer Tee FAQ" | url=http://www.arnoldpalmertee.com/faqs.asp]

Although the beverage was created at the Cherry Creek Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado, it is particularly popular in northern West Virginia, Central Ohio and western Pennsylvania, as well as the South, but is known throughout the United States. In Baltimore, it is known as half and half. In southern Ohio, particularly Portsmouth, Ohio, this beverage is known as a “Blend”. A purely cosmetic variation in which the drink is not mixed, causing the lemonade to settle on the bottom and the iced tea to float on the top, is known as an "Adam Palmer". Also if you add a splash of grenadine it is called a "Bryan Palmer". Throughout Pennsylvania area it is known as "Tea Cooler" made popular by Wawa. Additionally, at Harvard University a student has popularized a mixture of Pink Lemonade and iced tea called the Carson Palmer (after the professional football player).

The Arizona Beverage Company sells the "Arnold Palmer" in cans and bottles.

Alcoholic Variations

There are five alcoholic variations. The first, known as the "Tom arnold", consists of the original iced-tea/lemonade mixture, with vodka added. Another variation, the "John Daly", contains 1¼ oz citrus vodka, ¼ oz triple sec, topped off with ½ lemonade and ½ iced tea. The third variation is referred to as the "Dirty Palmer." This drink consists of 2/3 Arnold Palmer and 1/3 Sailor Jerry Rum. The "Hard Arnold" or "Stiff Palmer" is equal parts of Mike's Hard Lemonade and Twisted Tea (most common in the US Midwest). Finally, adding a shot of Amaretto, such as Disaronno, is called an "Arnold Palmer Senior."Fact|date=April 2008
