Arnold Palmer with a Twist

IMG_6113

The sun is shining, pools are open and the cocktails are flowing. YES!  Summer is here and it feels so good!

July’s delicious cocktail is another easy-to-make cocktail… All you need is some Deep Eddy Sweet Tea, lemonade and lemons to create this delicious beverage everyone (above 21) will love.

Give it a try and let us know what you think!

IMG_6113

Ingredients:

  • Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka: Tasting Notes – Deep Eddy Sweet Tea begins with our 10x-distilled Original Vodka, to which we add real, whole-leaf Indonesian Black Tea and sweeten with a hint of organic honey from a local Texas Hill Country apiary. Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka was our first product, but like the rest of our vodkas, doesn’t take itself too seriously!
  • Lemonade: We used organic lemonade from our next store neighbor, Stop & Shop
  • Lemon wedge

IMG_6117 IMG_6110

Make It: Mix together 2 ounces of Deep Eddy with 4 ounces of lemonade and add a lemon wedge
