Any fans here? 1/2 lemonade, 1/2 ice tea, we sell quite a bit, suprising, but I must say, I enjoy them!

I don't drink them, but I find some amusement when my 55 year old brother orders one for himself and his wife.
 
I like my tea straight up.  Sweet.

Yes, I enjoy it, too.  Tried to get Chick-Fil-A to serve me one (they sell both fresh-squeezed lemonade and ice tea), and they refused.  Couldn't get a reason why.   It would be a NATURAL for them.

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Palmer plays golf for money on Sundays.

You know, they'd do really well on the sale if they sold me one and charged for a lemonade.  Simply charge for the more expensive drink and dilute it with cheap tea.  They win and I get the drink I want.

Costco Lunch-----Polish Sausage, onions and deli mustard. Arnold Palmers from the Soda Machine (sometimes a little strange if they have the flavored tea instead of the straight iced tea. Arnold Palmer's just the thing to go with the dog!

I dont like lemon in my iced tea, so I dont think I would like it.It is, however, a huge seller where I work.But I guess I should try it sometime.
Mellow-thats the silliest thing I ever heard. Why wouldnt they do that????? If, when I served beverages from behind the counter, and a customer wanted every damn thing I had mixed, I would do it(sometimes with a quizzical look on my face)

Jungle Jim's had a sale on the cans one week, and I loved it in the cans.
Then a sale on the 1/2 gallon version the next week, and that had NO lemonade taste.
I get the zero calorie version.
 
This is made by Arizona tea company and is Gluten Free, so can be drank by my Celiac grand daughter.
The canned version makes a good mixer with a shot of whatever you choose in it.
I just got back from Austin and learned to like 'Texas Tea' really fast.
 
Chewie, do a lot of your patrons carry  flasks ?   Inquiring minds..........

Never tried it. Don't guess I ever will.

When it comes to food and beverages, next to my wife, you're the most closed-minded person I know or have heard of.

Let me see if I understand you correctly. Because I can't stand lemon in my iced tea I am closed-minded for not wanting the taste of lemon in my iced tea. Is that about it?

I can not stand lemon in my iced tea, but I like Arnold Palmers.  Now if someone does not like lemon aide and/or iced tea at all then I would expect them to not like it.

Gee, I don't know. I don't like the taste of lemon with iced tea. Seems to me that lemonade probably tastes sort of lemony. So if it's in iced tea ... well?

Wow, this has turned into an informative thread.  People who do not like lemons may not like Arnold Palmers.  I'll alert the media.

I've seen them in the can made by Arizona but the idea just doesn't appeal. I might try one though as I try not to close my mind to new idea's.

I get quizzical looks most every time I place an order.  Interestingly, legend has it the first time Arnold Palmer ordered a mixture of lemonade and tea, he was refused.  And it wasn't even Chick-Fil-A!

Dont worry-I have alerted the media already that Mr. Hoffman, myself and Mar dont like lemon in their tea, so they probably wouldnt like lemonade in it either. I have had 5 requests for interviews...will post the link once I know air dates.

My older daughter likes the sugar-free version from Arizona but I've never had one.
 
To be authentic does it have to be topped off with a splash of Pennzoil?

I make a Lee Trevino version with Alcohol.  I'll be making 5 Gallons for my Siete de Mayo party.  (Because we can't get drunk on a Thursday.)
 
Lemonade
Iced Tea
1.75L Sweet Tea Vodka
750 ml Grain Alcohol
6 Limes, halved, squeezed and thrown in.
1 Bunch of Fresh Mint, chopped and tied in cheesecloth, floated.

I do like the 50-50 Lemonade and tea combination. At some of the family get-togethers we may add a bit of Knob Creek to the individual beverage cups (think BIG GULP or SONIC HIGHWAY 44 size). But usually we just drink the non-alcoholic version !

My good friend Dr. Goldman in PA swears by a mixture of 75% lemonade and 25% grape juice.  Hey, it sounds good to me.

He could! He owns a chunk of SW Pennsylvania, not to mention some of Central FL.

The only thing I can think of is that their lemonade costs more than their iced tea.  I've never had Chik-Fil-A say no to any request, though if I want to exchange a coupon for a different item, I do say up front I'll pay the difference.

Wow, that's amazing (and also sad to hear).  One time a cashier wasn't sure if she could 'upgrade' me by charging more, but asked the manager who had no problem with it.
I hope this was an anomoly in your case, as, again, I've never had anything but the best service at any chik-Fil-A

Yes, I agree, Chick-Fil-A offers outstanding, friendly service, so I think it was just a bad day behind the counter.  I'm a huge Chick-Fil-A fan and have great deal of respect for the company and the founder.

We use a version similar to the one by foodbme and call it a "naughty Arnold". Try  adding a sprig of fresh mint.

I was reading the beverage forum,  started thinking about lemonade and  iced tea. Lo and behold I spied the Arizona Arnold Palmer lite at Aldi's---- $2.99 for a gallon container. Tastes good to me, so I will go back to the store and  stock up for these Georgia hot summer months.

I try to avoid too much sugar, so my Arnold Palmer is 1/2 Unsweetened Iced Tea, and 1/2 Crystal Light.
 
It's satisfying...
