The Arnold Palmer is a classic summer drink. Since gaining popularity and earning its eponymous name in the 1950s, it's like a magical elixir for your taste buds in the heat. But what if you are like us and prefer coffee to tea? We took the classic Arnold Palmer, swapped the tea for coffee, and added a few fun twists to make it our own!

Who doesn’t like a tall glass of iced coffee? When it’s too hot for hot coffee, and you’re tired of plain iced coffee, this drink is delicious, like a fruity, floral Arnold Palmer. Iced coffee in the summer is the best way to stay cool, whether on the patio or putting green.
