Arnold Palmer.

This one is in the pantheon of classic non-alcoholic refreshers, right up there with the Roy Rogers and Shirley Temple (which, apparently she herself hated).

When the iced tea to lemonade ratio is 1:1, it's called a Half and Half.

Palmer himself preferred a 3:1 ratio of unsweetened iced tea to lemonade, which is what I sort of intuited for myself.  

Really, you can't beat the classics.  This was such a refresher after today's runnings around.

I fancied things up a bit by using three parts Earl Grey tea to one part Fever Tree Bitter Lemon.

Am really growing to like the Fever Tree sodas; better tasting, non-sugar-bomb takes on the classic drink mixers / tonics.
