cocktail friend: mrs. palmer

Finally it’s gotten a little hot and humid in NYC – and our Friday Fizz summer series is here just in time. Today we’re looking at the Arnold Palmer, a classic non-alcoholic drink that’s just a mix of lemonade and iced tea.

But I bet Arnie’s wife would be a cool cocktail party host and serve this Mrs. Palmer drink. It adds a hint of ginger, thanks to the Ginger Lemonade seltzer that Polar has made for the summer. They came up with this recipe and obviously the drink rocks because it’s a cocktail, but you could also just throw the flavored seltzer on the rocks for guests who wanted to stay clear to play a round of golf with Arnie.

1 part lemonade

1 part unsweetened tea

1 part Polar Ginger Lemonade Seltzer

1/2 part vodka

Combine ingredients in a large pitcher filled with ice, adding the seltzer last so the bubbles don’t get bruised (that last part was a tip from Polar – I’d never heard of bruising seltzer bubbles!).

All guests will be ready for another round – of golf or cocktails.

  1. Love this idea for an Arnold Palmer twist! I usually add Poli Miele (honey- and herb-infused grappa liqueur) to sparkling lemonade Izzze, freshly brewed tea, and vodka. I will have to try the Polar Ginger Lemonade Spritzer for yet another combo! Thanks!
