Arnold Palmer Mix UpArnold Palmers are my favorite summer drink! These sweet treats are half ice tea and half lemonade. They are named after a famous golfer. Some people also call these half and halfs. I've been playing around with different fruit tea varieties at my studio and I thought they would be fun to share. I love that they are sweet, but much less sweet than lemonade. I always make mine with unsweetened teas. 

Making Sun TeaFirst I make sun tea. I'm sure most of you have done this before, but since I have had a few questions about it I thought I'd explain. Sun tea is simply tea that steeps in the sunlight. I let mine sit in the direct sunlight for at least an hour. I usually forget that it's on my front porch, though, and it sits for several hours. I love this method because the prep is super simple and my mom makes it this way. :) 

Fresh fruit makes everything betterI add fresh fruit to my Arnold Palmers. It's delicious, especially the grapefruit! 

Blueberry Arnold PalmerHere are a few of my favorite combinations. Have you tried blueberry tea? It's amazing. 

Peach Grapefruit Arnold PalmerPeach tea + Lemonade + Fresh grapefruit is my favorite combination. It's refreshing with just the right amount of tartness. 

Raspberry Arnold PalmerI love raspberry anything, so this combination is another favorite. 

Arnold Palmers are so yum!I hope some of you get to try this recipe for the first time this summer! And for all of you long time Arnold Palmer lovers, I hope you try a new combination of flavors! xo. Elsie
