Since it’s summer, iced teas and lemonades are popping up more frequently. For those of you who frequent Publix grocery stores, you’ll find lemonades in all varieties– from strawberry lemonades, to raspberry lemonades, blackberry lemonades, and so on. They even began selling Arnold Palmers, a beverage comprised of half lemonade and half iced tea. I decided to make it unique.
I often buy flavored syrups, and create fun concoctions with them. I bought a mango syrup, and a pineapple-flavored syrup (you can find them at Home Goods, Marshalls or TJ Maxx), and decided to create a fun spin- what I’d like to call a “tropical Arnold Palmer”. This drink is simple. It’s made up on an Arnold Palmer (which can be ready mixed, such as the ones at Publix, and in other grocery stores, or you can mix it yourself, like I did), mango syrup, and pineapple syrup.
I took a half gallon of lemonade and a half gallon of iced tea, and mixed them evenly to create the base for the drink. Then I decided to make a single serving (8 oz to 12 oz), pouring the drink into a cup. I added a cap full of mango syrup, and a cap full of pineapple syrup, mixing it steadily until the syrup was dissolved. And voila! Your Arnold Palmer is pimped out, with a Caribbean accent! You can always add more or less syrup to taste. Other variants include: Blackberry Arnold Palmers, Pineapple or mango Arnold Palmers (independently) blueberry,strawberry, peach, or even raspberry.
