COCKTAILS: Tipsy Arnold Palmer
The first time I traveled to Europe, I was a fresh-faced 18 year old who had just graduated from high school. Since it was legal for me to drink alcohol over there, I was excited about the possibilities of trying some exotic cocktail concoctions. Little did I know that after taking trains, planes and automobiles to get there, I’d feel more like a nap and some Pepto Bismol than anything remotely ‘spirited.’
One drink that did refresh me was Pimm’s. This quintessential British drink is mainly enjoyed mixed with lemonade (which is really more like our version of Sprite) in a Pimm’s Cup. Yum!
Since then, my taste for stronger drinks has developed but I still enjoy a Pimm’s every now and then. I thought it would be fun to play around with it to make a cocktail with more of a southern flair and this is what led me to creating the “Tipsy Arnold Palmer.”
You can probably imagine what’s in it…sweet iced tea, lemonade and Pimm’s. It’s that easy. You can adjust the proportions to your liking, but I think you’ll enjoy this. Summer might be on its way out the door, but we’re probably going to have quite a bit more warm weather here in the sweet south and I think this drink will quench your thirst!
