Arnold Palmers, Three Ways

By Hannah Theisen for Numi Tea

Arnold Palmers — the half lemonade, half iced tea drink named after the American golfer who popularized the drink—are the perfect way to beat the summer heat! Numi’s range of iced teas opens up a world of flavor possibilities, and though these drinks look fancy they are really quite easy to throw together!

Make these to impress summer dinner guests, or assemble the drinks in mason jars with lids and throw them in a cooler of ice to bring to a barbecue or 4th of July party! Here’s how…


1. Make a gallon of lemonade. Boil two cups of water. Add two cups of sugar (or sweetener of choice) and stir to dissolve. Add two cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Add enough cold water to make one gallon of liquid. Chill.

2. Brew your Numi tea according to your package instructions.

3. Add tea, fruit, ice, or alcohol to create your perfect summer drink combination!

Here are a few of my tried-and-true favorites…
