Summer Berry Arnold Palmer
Recipe Type: Drink, Virgin, Tea
A refreshing Arnold Palmer is made even more cool and delicious with the addition of muddles berries.
  • 4-5 black tea bags
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup honey or agave (adjust to taste; you can substitute stevia to taste)
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh mixed berries (see note)
  1. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in the microwave or over the stove, remove from heat, add tea bags, cover, and set aside to steep and cool.
  2. Bring 3 more cups of water to a boil and add lemon juice and honey or agave. Stir until honey is dissolved. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, defrost the berries (do not discard the juices). Use the back of a spoon or fork to gently mash them to release more juices.
  4. Add the berries to a pitcher, and pour the iced tea and lemonade over them. Stir to combine flavors and add more water if the flavor is too strong for you. Alternately, you can combine the iced tea and lemonade in the pitcher and then make the drinks one by one by adding the berries to each glass and pouring the drink over it.
I used honey but you can substitute liquid stevia if you wish. I don’t know how many drops you will need; just add it little by little until it tastes right to you.
I used a berry mixture consisting of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. You can use whatever you want and have on hand. As for fresh vs. frozen, I prefer the frozen ones because, once defrosted, they are already a little bit more broken down and have released some of their juices. But if fresh is all you have, give it a try.
