PHDinMeBlog- Family Saturday/Arnold Palmer Anyone?


Hey Scholars,

(c) Photography by Shona

The kids and I found this leaf and it reminded me of one of my favorite drink combinations- Sweet Tea and Lemonade other wise known as an Arnold Palmer!  Isn’t nature cool and inspiring?  What’s also cool- and refreshing- is this yummy summer drink! Personally in my family, we drink both year ’round.  Especially Lemonade! (Funny story- once we moved to the MidWest from the South and we were shocked to learn in that part of the country they normally serve iced tea UNSWEETENED!  It was liked we had moved to Mars!  That’s unheard of in the South!!!)

I have never actually made this drink, I have only ordered and purchased it in various places.  I’m inspired to give it a try so stay tuned and I will let you know how it came out!  Cross your fingers.  If you read yesterdays post- YOU KNOW WHY!  LOL!
