Sweet tee-time

By Crystal Dey

Goldilocks would have loved Arnold Palmer. He got the swell drink of the 1960s just right – not too sweet, not too sour, not too bitter. His classic cocktail has been Chiczified and brought into 2013 as the Pink Lady Palmer.


Raspberry iced tea
Pink lemonade

Brew a raspberry flavored tea and chill in the refrigerator overnight. We used Celestial Seasonings’ Raspberry Zinger. Add sugar to sweeten to preferred taste. Also, toss a metal tablespoon in the freezer.

Add ice to a glass and fill halfway with pink lemonade. If making your own lemonade, try our Raspberry Pink Lemonade recipe below. Otherwise, try Simply Lemonade with Raspberry.

Pour chilled iced tea over the back of the frozen spoon slowly into the glass. This will keep the two liquids separate and create a two-toned tonic.

Pop a few raspberries on top, garnish with a lemon slice, and you just aced the Pink Lady Palmer!


1 cup raspberries
1 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup sugar
6 cups water

Puree raspberries and press through a fine sieve over a bowl to extract juice. Mix sugar, lemon juice and 6 cups cold water until sugar is dissolved. Add raspberry juice. Mix and chill in refrigerator at least one hour prior to serving over ice.
