An “Arnold Palmer” drink combines lemonade and iced tea. A “Tipsy Palmer” (or “Tipsy Arnold Palmer") adds vodka or bourbon. “Tipsy Palmer” has been cited since at least June 2009 and “Tipsy Arnold Palmer” from at least August 2009.
There are many names for alcoholic “Arnold Palmer” drinks—such as “Spiked Arnold Palmer,” “Adult Arnold Palmer,” “Grown-Up Arnold Palmer,” “Hard Arnold Palmer,” “Drunk Arnold Palmer” and also “John Daly” (a golfer known for his drinking)—and many of these these existed before “Tipsy Palmer” was first cited in print.

3. Tipsy Arnold Palmer. Sweetened bottled versions of lemonade and iced tea can be pretty loaded with sugar. However, if we brew our own iced tea and squeeze our own lemons, with a bit of sugar substitute and 2 ounces of vodka, we can make a really tasty cocktail that doesn’t have so many calories. Or, the light Minute Maid version and some diet iced tea will work for the domestically challenged.
3 oz. light lemonade (or juice of one lemon plus 3 oz. water and sugar substitute)
3 oz. diet iced tea (or 2 teabags steeped in 3 oz. water)
2 oz. vodka Sprig of mint (optional)
Ice Pour over ice. Stir. Enjoy. Just don’t try to play golf after two of these.

Tipsy Palmer: The Ultimate Summer Cocktail
May 24, 2013
The sweet, citrusy tea-lemonade combo mellows the alcoholic flavor in bourbon, making a smooth-drinking cocktail that’ll convert even those who claim not to like the brown stuff.
If I’m entertaining, I’ll make a big batch with fresh-squeezed lemonade and bracing black tea, but I’ve also picked up many a bottle of pre-made lemonade and iced tea (usually black, sometimes black and green) on my way to other parties. Garnished with a fresh lemon wedge and served in a Collins glass on ice, the Tipsy Palmer tastes to me like endless summer.
