With summer heating up, I’ve honestly had very little inspiration lately to create new savory recipes; however, I’ve been all over the beverages, no-bake desserts, and no-cook everythings. I’m sure once I adjust to the heat, the fire for creating new hot foods will return. In the meantime, follow me.

I made us a Vanilla Bean Jasmine Arnold Palmer. Essentially instead of regular black tea, we make a vanilla bean-infused jasmine tea. We then combine the tea with both lychee juice and lemonade for a unique, refreshing summer beverage. Do we add tequila? I don’t see why not..

The way I see it, this Arnold Palmer situation is a lovely drink to share with friends and family over the 4th of July. You can make this a big batch beverage situation by mixing the tea, lychee juice, and lemonade all together in a big pitcher and serve it to folks all at the same time, or you can prepare the drinks separately if individuals prefer varying tea-to-lemonade ratios.

I like using my own homemade lemonade, which I make using pure maple syrup (see my Naturally Sweetened Lemonade Margaritas for my lemonade recipe), but you can use your favorite store-bought lemonade in all the land.
