Agave Arnold Palmer

each summer growing up i'd head to my grandmas (ninny as we call her) in mississippi.
i loved to visit her.  i could always count on lots of hours in her little garden, southern made veggies, sweet iced tea, and lots of lemons.
 It's warm here in Florida - like 80 degree warm (don't hate me)... so I needed something refreshing.
agave arnold palmer to the rescue!
you just cut your unsweetened iced tea with the agave lemonade
to make the agave lemonade: juice the lemons (12), cut with 4.5 cups of water, and 3/4 cup of agave. stir! 
a delicious mid day treat!
what's yours?

  5. Love how you styled the second photo Sarah! Arnold Palmers are our favorite! Sometimes, we spike them, or just drink them regular. But i've not had a fresh squeezed one. So good!

  8. This make me want to go to my Aunt's house in Florida. It's one of my favorite places to visit. But since I am here, in blustery Seattle, my mid-day treat is Starbucks new Blonde roast... yummm.

  22. Those are beautiful lemons, did you grow them in your yard? I wish I was able to grow citrus but the weather in Illinois is too extreme. I happen to love a few slices of avocado and tomatoes sprinkled with pepper. So fresh!!
