Summertime Quenchers: The Perfect Arnold Palmer

Striking just the right balance of iced tea and lemonade is essential to making the perfect Arnold Palmer, but to achieve that elusive striation of liquids?  It’s all in the pour!

Here's how the talented mixologists at the Panama Hotel in San Rafael do it:

1. Fill half- to three-quarters of a tall frosty glass with ice cubes.

2. Top the ice with lemonade.

3. Slowly pour in the iced tea over the ice cubes and lemonade.

4. Enjoy!

Finishing touches:  Slip in a paper-thin slice of lemon for color, a sprig of mint on top for flavor, and serve with a long silver spoon.
