Iced tea and Lemonade, my contribution to the culinary world.


Most self serve Coke machines have a tap for Minute Maid lemonade.

Dispense 2 to 3 inches lemonade into bottom of the cup.

Finish Filling cup with unsweetened tea.

Stir well

It's better then adding a wedge of lemon to your tea. The lemon at self serve sometimes gets handled by many unwashed hands.

I had never heard of a Arnold Palmer.

But, yes same idea Except the AP isn't stirred.

Beaten to the punch by a golfer.

It is even better with a shot of tequila.

I was surprised at how good tea & lemonade are.

It would be even better with fresh squeezed lemonade offered at the nicer clubs.

I was first introduced to iced tea with lemonade back in 1993, which appears to predate references to any connection with Arnold Palmer by a decade or so.

I've been drinking it ever since, though 4-5 ounces of lemonade per half-gallon pitcher of sweet tea is my preferred concentration.

That's when you drink an Arnold Palmer while banging the waitress who brought it to you.

But that's just a variation on the "mixing two things" idea, which acey thought of first.

According to this it started in the 60's.

I wonder if carbonated tea would be good?

People with a Soda Stream could try it.

I made this drink once where I put chocolate syrup into a glass of cold milk, and it made the milk taste like chocolate. What should I call it?

I didn't know Sparkling meant carbonated. I've seen sparkling tea at stores and didn't buy any.

Try Arnold Palmer Spiked. 4.5% ABV and hits the spot on a hot summer day.

A proper John Daly is sweet tea flavored vodka with lemonade.

I almost never buy any new drinks. The standard sodas, juice, and sweet tea is just about it.

I haven't bought a alcoholic or non-alcoholic cocktail in a club in over 16 years. It's just not my thing anymore. My employer used to send us to conferences and we'd have a drink in the hotel lounge.

It's not in that picture, but that's not a requirement of an Arnold Palmer (I've never had one served like that one--it's always been mixed). If there's a difference, it's that yours sounds like it doesn't have a 50-50 ratio of lemonade to iced tea, but it's hardly a unique idea. My friends and I were mixing lemonade and iced tea as kids before we even knew what an Arnold Palmer was (also, lemonade and Coke, lemonade and 7-Up, 7-Up and Coke, etc.) It surprises me you haven't come across that combination before.

And, yes, "sparkling" means carbonated as in "sparkling water" and "sparkling wine." Surely, you've encountered those?

What, is Prohibition still on? The essential third ingredient that is missing is vodka -- which I see that some discriminating posters have already noted!

For a variation, try lemonade alone with vodka.

For another variation, forget both the lemonade and the iced tea, just have the vodka. Optionally add a "tipsy" onion -- a miniature pickled onion that's been marinated in vermouth.

I assume people at home have mixed up all sorts of juices,teas, and sodas.

One of my favorites is Sprite & OJ. It's my family's version of Orange Crush with real juice.

Hopefully a few people reading this thread didn't already know about Tea & lemonade and will give it a try. They're in for a treat.

I just wanted to share a cool recipe for a very hot summer day. The heat index here is 103 and we're under a heat advisory for the next few days. I'll be drinking a lot of cold water & iced tea.

Growing up (DC metro area, 80s) mixed soft drinks, generally from a self-serve fountain, was known as a "suicide." I've also heard it referred to as swamp water, graveyard, garbage soda, kamikaze; I'm sure there are all kinds of other unique regional terms for it.

Chocolated milk?

I wonder if it would work with any other fluids, chocolated vodka perhaps. Or chocolated cough syrup.

I'm baffled. What did you think it meant? I guess I could see someone thinking it meant there were suspended sparkly flakes like Goldschlager, but surely you've tasted something labeled sparkling at some point in your life, and sensed the similarity to carbonated beverages?

I've had sparkling water at restaurants. It may have been lightly carbonated. I didn't give it much thought. My main memory is it was a bit more refreshing than tap water.

It wasn't anything like club soda or ginger ale.

I only drink Diet Coke if I can have a wedge of lemon with it.

Also, I never have an Arnold Palmer with sweet tea...makes it waaaaaaay too sweet.

All you people who put vodka in the lemonade are a buncha damned heathens--rum is a million times better. Also rum or tequila in limeade, it's like that childhood you read about in books that aren't meant for kids.

I wonder how this would go with this new candy I'm working on: people like chocolate, people like peanut butter--how about some small cup that combines the two?

You just might have something there, Garrison, I was thinking making the cup out of the peanut butter would be way too messy then I had this eureka moment and I'm all "Wow, make the cup out of the CHOCOLATE instead!" I'm a genius!

Back in the 1970s that's more or less how my family always made ice tea - instead of four scoops of powered iced tea per pitcher it was 3 scoops of iced tea and one of powered lemonade. I lived on that stuff every summer.

I remember as a child inventing a drink that involved mixing different pop varieties at random when I went to a restaurant. I think I named it a "homicide".

No, I remember very clearly, you named it "Suicide".

"Your" invention was one of my faves as a kid.
