#DrinkOfTheWeek: Bourbon Arnold Palmer

Whiskey drinkers have a right to a refreshing drink in this ungodly heat! And no, not a Whiskey Sour. That’s yummy too, but let’s get creative! Who doesn’t love an Arnold Palmer? I can’t think of anyone. Throw in some Bourbon and fresh orange juice, and you’ll get the perfect cocktail to accompany a barbecue. Freshly squeezed juice is vital in this recipe. One lemon and one orange should be enough for about 4 drinks. Any iced tea will do, homemade would probably taste the freshest. I came across some Arnold Palmer iced tea, and I couldn’t resist. This cocktail is just scrumptious!


What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz of quality Bourbon, I chose Knob Creek
  • iced tea
  • fresh squeezed orange juice
  • fresh squeezed lemon juice

Combine ingredients and pour over ice in a highball glass. Garnish with a lemon peel.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
