Day 196 - Arnold Palmer.
Oh hi! Sweaty summer weather today or what? Whew. When I'm hot and sweaty, I usually grab a talk drink of water but today I'm really jonesing for an Arnold Palmer. Yes, it is a drink named after the super famous fantastic golfer. Do I like golf? No! I, however, do love the mix of slightly sweet ice tea and tart lemonade which is named after Mr. Palmer.
I started thinking, wouldn't it be fun to create a new drink and name it? Today's project is to become bartender for the day and make up a signature party drink. Why not mix together Orange Fanta, coconut water with a splash of lime? Name it "Vacation Monday?" How about beer with sriracha and pepperoni slices? The name "College Nightmare" sounds right. How about earl grey tea, fresh mint and tequila. Maybe "Aunt Tilly" as a tribute to all those glorious thanksgiving memories of that special Aunt. In short, everyone should have a signature drink. In the meantime here is a video to show to how throw together a round of homemade Arnold Palmers.
I'm headed to make up a drink with Tootsie Pops and lemon lime soda. Wish me luck and drop me a line and fill me in on the latest bartenders!
