    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?

        My Secret Drunkin' Arnold Palmer recipe:
        Fill glass with ice.
        37.5% Iced Tea
        37.5% Lemonade
        25% Vodka!
        Garnish with lime or lemon slice.



        That's a John Daly :)

              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.

                            I love AP's. It's strange when they give you raspberry lemonade in it.

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

                                        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.
                                        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.

                                          No, I asked them to charge me for a lemonade and fill half of the cup with tea.

                                            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...
