This classic Arnold Palmer Drink is a refreshing combination of tea and homemade lemonade. It is one of my favorite summer beverages and perfect for pool parties, patio and deck parties, and picnics. So grab a glass, pull up a chair, and let’s reminisce for a while. Hubby and I love to have an assortment of quick and easy summer drink recipes on hand for when friends drop by. This recipe, fresh peach tea, blueberry lemonade, and strawberry lemonade are just a few of our favorites.
