Fun fact: California grows over 92% of the lemons available in the United States. Which means we know a thing or two about lemons and what to make with them!
To ensure you are getting every last bit of juice from the lemons that you are using simply roll the lemons around on the counter and apply pressure from the palm of your hand to soften. Then cut in half, and squeeze into a liquid measuring cup.
The Arnold Palmer, also known as the “Half and Half,” is a refreshing blend of iced tea and lemonade named after the famous professional golfer, Arnold Palmer.
Back in the late 1960s, the legendary golfer Arnold Palmer was finishing up designing a golf course in the Palm Springs area. After a long hot day, he stopped by a restaurant to order lunch. As he looked over the menu, he decided to try something new and asked the waitress for a mix of lemonade and iced tea. A woman sitting nearby overheard what he ordered and was intrigued. When she ordered the same drink, she called it “that Arnold Palmer drink.”
