How to Make Arnold Palmers

For the Hibiscus Tea

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Then, remove from the heat and place 3 Hibiscus tea bags into the pot, and let steep for 5-10 minutes. Then, transfer into a large glass and let chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours. arnold palmer drink in a glass before pouring hibiscus tea over the top

For the Homemade Lemonade

Mix together 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice, 1/2 cup water and 3 tablespoons of honey simple syrup. Depending on the juiciness of your lemons, 3 or 4 lemons will yield 3/4 cups fresh lemon juice. Then, set the homemade lemonade aside. arnold palmer drink being stirred in a glass with a spoon

Place ice on the bottom of 4 glasses and then pour in 1.5 oz. vodka into each glass. If you’re looking to keep these sans alcohol, simply skip this step! We love using clear glasses, so you can see the beauty of this drink! Then, pour in about 1/3 cup of homemade lemonade into each glass. Next, pour in about 1/4 cup hibiscus tea into each glass and use a spoon or stir stick to stir. Give your Arnold Palmer a little sip, and add more honey simple syrup as needed. Serve with your favorite garnishes, or let this beaut stand on its own. Some of our go-to garnishes for Arnold Palmer drinks include:
