An unbeatable combination of iced black tea and lemonade, this classic thirst quenching mocktail will keep you refreshed throughout the summer.

The story goes that the golfer Arnold Palmer was in the habit of drinking iced tea with lemonade at home. In 1960 at the U.S. Open at the Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, he ordered the non-alcoholic drink at the bar.

A woman sitting nearby overheard him, and ordered "that Palmer drink", thus giving the drink its name. Word got around because it's now one of the best known iced tea drinks.

Palmer preferred three parts unsweetened tea, to one part lemonade and I'm with him on that because I think too much lemonade can just make it too sweet.

Super simple.

Two parts of a cold black tea of your choice, one part lemonade, a good squeeze of fresh lemon topped with ice & a slice. If you wanted to really up the citrus flavour, you could try Earl Grey or Blue Lady, which would work exceptionally well with the lemonade.
