This classic Arnold Palmer Drink is a refreshing combination of unsweetened iced tea and homemade lemonade. It is one of my favorite summer beverages, and it is perfect for pool parties, patio and deck parties, and picnics. You don’t have to be on the golf course to enjoy this refreshing beverage. So grab a glass, pull up a chair, and let’s reminisce for a while.
