Arnold 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.
First 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. :)
