Arnold Palmer Bourbon Cocktail


This Arnold Palmer Bourbon Cocktail spikes the classic drink to create the most refreshing summer sipper. Not too sweet and not too boozy, this is a cocktail you can sit back and relax with.


  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 ½ ounces fresh lemon juice
  • 3 ounces prepared iced tea
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • Lemon wheel, for garnish


  1. Combine honey and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Using a bar spoon, stir together until honey dissolves into lemon juice.
  2. Add iced tea and bourbon. Fill shaker with ice, secure lid and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled.
  3. Strain into a rocks or collins glass filled with ice. Garnish with a lemon wheel.


Seek out decaffeinated iced tea if you’ll be sipping on this in the evening.

Since we’re sweetening with honey, opt for unsweetened iced tea.
