For those of you in San Francisco, the weather over the next couple of days is going to be beautiful and warm.

Which always makes me think of Arnold Palmers (or half-and-half or lemonade iced tea)

So here is a re-post from learningtogarden (my old blog) of how to make it at home.

Half and Half

8 cups of water

4 tea bags

1 cup sugar

1 cup of lemon juice

In a big pot on the stove, bring the water to a boil.  Remove from heat and add tea bags.  Wait between five and ten minutes.  Depending on how strong you like your tea, or how long you forget about it for.  Stir in the sugar.  It should easily dissolve because the water is still hot.  Stir in the lemon juice.  Let the whole concoction cool to room temperature, put into a jug and put in the fridge.

If you have some handy (which I do), throw in some mint for extra deliciousness.

Enjoy!
