Where to get an Arnold Palmer drink in the Bay Area?

I've been wanting to try an Arnold Palmer drink for the longest time. It's half lemonade and half iced tea. Anyone seen it on the menu or know where to get a good version?
Thanks in advance.

The best Arnold Palmer I have had is not at a restaurant but in a can. Arizona Ice Tea sells a canned Arnold Palmer, It's actually a "lite". It has pictures of Arnold Palmer all over the can. I get it at Nob Hill Market. I have tried several at different restauran's and found none as good as this. They also carry an Arnold Palmer in a larger 1/2 gal milk size container but it's not as good. The can sell's for .99 and I think it's 20 oz.
Almost every resturant that i have been to that has has fresh lemonade knows what an Arnold Palmer is and will make it for you, but it seems like it won't ever be on the menu.
Places i have gotten one in the last 6-8 months:
Cafe for all Seasons
and there have been other's but i can't really remember right now.
Here is the problem with Arnold Palmers:
If a place makes it's own lemonade, well, they are proud of that lemonade and asking them to mix it with iced tea, they can't seem to wrap their heads around that. so almost ALWAYS the ratio of half iced tea to half lemonade fails. they will fill the glass with ice and pour in half the lemonade and then add like a splash of iced tea on top so it just looks like dirty lemonade.
I think the ratio has to be more like 3 to 1 in the iced tea's favor....
that is my two cents.
Have a good day
