Tipsy Arnold Palmer


Test Kitchen-Approved

Author Notes: If you ask a group of golfers to tell you how the Arnold Palmer came to life, they’ll tell you a few dozen stories. And we like a drink that’s got a good story—plus the bite of bourbon. Samantha Weiss Hills

Do the water and lemon juice amounts change if the bourbon is omitted? I don't drink and would like to make this drink without alcohol. Thanks.

An Arnold Palmer with alcohol is called a John Daly.
