The Arnold Palmer is a simple, virgin drink of half lemonade, half iced tea. It’s sweet and tart, refreshing and a great pick-me-up. Our version is all that and way more. We start with our Southbrook Berry Tea, add a serious dose of fresh lemon juice and a few fresh raspberries. And because it’s not too sweet, it’s a fantastic starting point for a cocktail; we think vodka – natural, lemon, or raspberry—or white rum would be great choices.
Better make a big batch, this stuff is good!
