The Arnold Palmer

chispa_c Apr 28, 2010 10:32 AM

Just back from San Francisco and I had never tried an Arnold Palmer before! Those are fantastic! Does anyone know of any restaurants that serve those here? I think adding some vodka to that might be good too.

Btw, found my macrons at Miette Bakery in the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero. Perfection; craving was satisfied.

    Arizona Ice Tea makes a version. I used to live in Pennsylvania not far from Latrobe and I never heard of it until I saw Arizona's version just recently (at Walgreens).

        You probably know, but it's called a John Daly when you add vodka.

            Head down to Twin/Spec's/wherever and pick up a bottle of Firefly Sweet Tea vodka, mix up your favorite lemonade, and go to town. Don't drink more than two, though!

          Sweet Leaf tea makes a pretty good half lemonade/half iced tea. I'm not sure about restaurants, but in theory any restaurant that makes its own iced tea and lemonade could make you one.

            Like you said verily - I've ordered them at lots of places, knowing that they had lemondade and tea. A lot of waitpeople already know the term.
