Front Porch Palmer

During the heat of late summer, nothing quite hits the spot like an iced cold glass of tea or lemonade. But how do you decide which refreshing beverage to choose? You don't have to! You can mix them together for the best of both worlds. A half-tea, half-lemonade drink (typically called an 'Arnold Palmer' after the famous golfer who loved the beverage) is a delicious way to stay cool.

This recipe is best with the famous Front Porch Special, since it's our "Classic Southern" black tea blend. But try it out with your favorite! Lemon Berry Blush makes for a refreshing twist on the old 'Arnold Palmer' recipe or try Briar Patch Brew to give your lemonade a fruity, berry twist. So brew up a batch of Concentrated Tea, grab your Piper Mini Measure, and get ready to be refreshed.
