Arizona’s Arnold Palmer

As you may know, I’ve been trying to find an inexpensive way to feed my Starbuck’s black tea lemonade addiction. Given that the 2 homemade attempts haven’t been cutting it so far I was really excited when I saw a pre-made version at the local variety store! At $1.49 for 680 mL ($0.54/cup) at my local Hasty Market i was overjoyed. Cheaper (and larger) than the $3.20 ($1.71 savings or pretty much half the price) at Starbucks, but less work

than making it at home! Nice compromise for an occassional treat. But alas, my dreams weren’t meant to last as my first impression is that this is a very bland drink. Doesn’t taste much of ice tea or lemonade to me.

My review: Thumbs down. 😦

I’ll stick with the homemade stuff for now and keep on the hunt for the perfect Starbuck’s replacement.
