Original Arnold Palmer

3-4 black tea bags,
4 c. water, divided
3/4 c. lemon juice
1/2 c. sugar
3 1/4 c. cold water
You can use store bought tea and lemonade.
For a sweeter tea, increase sugar to 3/4 cup. For a more tart, less sweet tea, reduce sugar to 1/3 - 1/4 cup of sugar. Adjust to your taste preference.
Step 1: In a microwave safe glass measuring cup or bowl, add 2 c. of water with 3-4 black tea bags. Microwave for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and let tea steep for about 5-10 minutes. Remove tea bags, pour tea concentrate into a pitcher and add 2 more cups of cold water. Stir.
Step 2: In a separate container, like a large glass measuring cup, combine lemon juice, sugar and 3 1/4 c. cold water. Stir to dilute sugar. Pour into pitcher with ice tea mixture and stir to combine. Chill. When ready to serve, pour into glasses over ice. Keep refrigerated.
