Arnold Palmer

Probably as close as I’m going to get to enjoying golf.  I can’t play it.  I don’t particularly enjoy watching it.  But I can drink it!

Traditionally an Arnold Palmer is half lemonade and half iced tea, no alcohol involved.  Then sweet tea vodka was made.  Coincidence?  I think not.  It obviously was meant to be.  And tonight we took it a step farther and added a mango twist.

Arnold Palmer with a Twist

  • 1 cup lemonade
  • 1 shot sweet tea vodka
  • 1 shot mango rum

Served over ice.  Glorious.  And I’m sure it be even more glorious if it was fresh lemonade instead of lemonade mix.  It might actually just send it over the edge, beyond my lovely margarita.  I’m sure later this summer I may be able to get back to you about this.

It’s a great kick off to the weekend ahead…

How do you kick off your weekend?

Peek-A-Boo

I see you!  Maybe?  There is a burger on this sandwich.  The first burger of the grilling season.  Hooray!

My burger toppings included sharp cheddar cheese, ketchup, bread and butter pickles, light mayo, and spinach.  It’s all loaded on a whole wheat bagel thin.  It’s the first time I’ve had a bagel thin.  It was pretty much what I expected, and in my opinion you really can’t go wrong with a bagel!

With veggies for dipping.

And since burgers are my summer food I thought I should have a summer beverage too.  A fresh lemonade.  Just a half a lemon, Splenda, ice, and water.  Simple, tart, and refreshing.  But one good drink doesn’t make me a bartender!

What’s your summer food and beverage?
