This Raspberry Arnold Palmer will quench your thirst at your next summer gathering! The classic drink is jazzed up with raspberry and can even be made for adults only!

When I was a little girl, I had this BFF named Nadia. She and her mom lived with her grandparents, exactly 5 houses away from mine. We would hang out there a lot, probably because her grandparents would be home in summer and on vacations, while my parents were at work.

Our favorite thing to do was break out the Lego’s and watch old episodes of I Love Lucy while polishing off a bag of Doritos. Oh, and doing plays for our parents. My favorite one to re-enact was The Parent Trap. She’d wear a paper bag as a skirt and I would sneak behind her and cut out a section, just like in the bridge scene of the movie. Those are some of the fondest memories of my childhood.

Once of the things that I always drank at her house was iced tea. Her grandfather used the powder and made the tea in old juice jars. We’d drink gallons of it! He made it strong too – the drink had just that little bit of burn from the powder not quite dissolved. It’s been over 25 years, but I can still taste that iced tea.

For some reason, I’ve never drank iced tea since. Now, lemonade, that I love. I drink Crystal Light every day in summer. So when I was brainstorming a good summer drink to serve for a party, somehow and Arnold Palmer jumped into my head.

An Arnold Palmer is just lemonade and iced tea mixed together. It’s such a simple drink, but it sounds so fancy! I decided to dress up my Arnold Palmer a little by adding muddled raspberries to the glass. It adds a berry tartness that is so good mixed with the lemonade and iced tea.

You can use any ice tea you want, but I used this Limon Black Ice Tea that I got at World Market. I wanted to brew ice tea instead of buying a jug and when I saw this, I knew it would be perfect.

In fact, if you’re hosting a party this summer, or doing any sort of Outdoor Entertaining, you should totally check out World Market. I absolutely love all of their stuff. It’s one of those stores I can spend so many hours in. They have just about everything you’d need to make an awesome party.

All of the stuff in that picture above is from World Market. I absolutely love teal and red together. In fact, if there is one color combination I am obsessed with, it’s that one!

And guess what? That peeking redish salmon tablecloth underneath? It’s not a tablecloth! It’s a scarf. I couldn’t find a tablecloth I liked, but World Market has a huge selection of cool scarves. Just a little tip – scour your closet. Maybe you have some great table linens hidden behind your purses!

Back to this drink. Isn’t it pretty? I added a sprig of basil because I didn’t have mint for garnish, but add what you have!

This drink is a fantastic afternoon thirst quencher. But it also makes a perfect evening cocktail! If you feel like jazzing this Raspberry Arnold Palmer up for adults only, just add a shot of vodka with the drink and raspberries to a cocktail shaker. You’ll have a drink that will make the parents happy!

Plain or alcoholic, this is a fabulous drink. I can’t believe I went so long without iced tea!

And I cant’ believe I’ve lived my life so long without plastic stemless glasses. Best. Purchase. EVER!

Enjoy!

    love love love World Market – all of our outdoor stuff comes from there and it’s fantastic. Also love that whenever I visit a local store I wind up seeing a family member as both of my sisters, my brother, and (soon to be) brother-in-law all work at them (when two of them aren’t at school). They are a great company and love that I can support my family while buying incredible fair trade organic coffee!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on June 23rd, 2013 at 4:47 pm

      I love, love LOVE that store. I could live there. :)

    This is one of those drinks where when I try it I know I will never be able to drink plain ice tea or lemonade again! I just love the raspberries!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on June 23rd, 2013 at 4:46 pm

      I know, I’m totally craving it. Thanks Tanya!

    Wow, that set up is GORGEOUS. The teal and the red is so pretty – I’ll have to keep that in mind for the Fourth of July. And this drink! Not only does it have color and texture, it is easy and sure to please everyone! The simplicity, yet stunning-ness, of all your recipes is why I keep coming back, Dorothy!

    Ok, so, I had heard of an Arnold Palmer, but had no idea what it was…thanks for enlightening me! It sounds totally delicious – my two favorite summertime drinks in one!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on June 23rd, 2013 at 4:43 pm

      It’s so good, I can’t believe I waited this long to try it. :) Thanks Jennifer!

    At the old age of 27, we recently discovered the cans of Arnold Palmer at the store. I have no idea how I missed this drink for so long! It’d be great to add vodka to.

    • Dorothy Kern replied on June 23rd, 2013 at 4:40 pm

      They sell cans of it? I never knew that! Vodka = YES.

  17. Mary. posted on June 21, 2013 at 3:18 pm (#)

    You mean “arnold palmer”s half and half” yes I tried it too. There’s also a rasberry flavored version ( I think) I remember my mom used to make “tea flavored lemonade” by putting some nestea® in some homemade lemonade, and it tasted good too. ;-)

    Happy Summer — looks so good. I could use one right now!!!

    Everything looks so posh and pretty! I haven’t been to World Market in a few years, but I think it’s time to change that… Just as long as I leave my credit cards and cash at home! ;)

    And one of my all-time favorite color combinations is pink and orange. I discovered it in 8th grade. Not sure why I like it so much — maybe because it’s bright and fun? (Although I do prefer it when they’re pastels instead of neons!)

    • Dorothy Kern replied on June 23rd, 2013 at 4:32 pm

      Yes, leave them at home. Otherwise you’ll spend too much! I know I always do…

  25. Tenns @ New Mama Diaries posted on June 21, 2013 at 11:39 pm (#)

    I absolutely love a good ole fashioned sweet tea/lemonade mix! I also love flavored teas and lemonades! This is literally the best of both worlds. I’ll definitely be trying this recipe out sometime soon.

    • Dorothy Kern replied on June 23rd, 2013 at 4:32 pm

      Enjoy!! Thank you!

  26. Brenda @sweetsimplestuff posted on June 22, 2013 at 9:07 am (#)

    I love your tweaking of this classic beverage, Dorothy! And you did the right thing by using tea bags for the iced tea! That’s the way to go when making tea!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

      Thanks Julie!! I really liked it with the bags, I can’t wait to make more of this!

    I LOVE World Market. And I got my stemless wine glasses there – champagne flutes too. I’ve been drinking APs for years. I think maybe one of the reasons this one tasted to special to you is that limon is lime (not lemon) so it had that extra kick. I’m definitely looking for it next I”m at Cost Plus. Thanks for a great post.
