Watermelon Arnold Palmer

Watermelon Arnold Palmer

So last week I shared my Arnold Palmer Chicken Wings with you. Today, I have another AP goodie for you. While here in the middle of watermelon season, you need to make a batch of Watermelon Arnold Palmers!  This recipe was created way back in 2015 for Our State Magazine’s August issue.  And I just realized I’ve never put that here on my blog… 

Visit your local farmers’ market, pick out a watermelon and make the lemon ice cubes.  Find a shade tree and plop yourself down… enjoy an ice cold Watermelon Arnold Palmer… and if so desired, throw in a splash of chilled vodka or similar adult spirit…
just make sure that is icy cold too!
