The "Arnold Palmer" as an alcoholic drink needs a proper citation and the Michael Phelps drink seems off topic and more fitting of Urban Dictionary. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:47, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Do not merge article[edit]

i think that it would be inappropriate to merge this article with Arnold Palmer as it would have to be shortened considerably. I suggest leaving it as it is for the time being and merging it with another Golf related article (perhaps an article dealing with the nineteenth hole) at a later date.

Hi pepole

I've heard this drink called "Sunshine Tea" by a native New Yorker, not to be confused with "Sun Tea" (which is tea brewed in a large glass jar set in the sun).

Alcoholic versions[edit]

I tried to follow up on the link provided to cite the alcoholic versions of this drink, but the article doesn't seem to have anything to say about this topic. Am I overlooking the text, or is this a bad reference for the topic? —Dajagr (talk) 21:43, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Rollback of an unsubstantiated and questionable assertion[edit]

If anyone can add details to this assertion by properly citing some reliable sources on this topic, then feel free to add it back. Otherwise, it sounds mostly like nonsense to me. --Willscrlt (Talk) 05:35, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

A non-encyclopedic POV advertisement was taken out like the garbage it was (talk) 03:34, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Mr. Palmer had been privately, painstakingly concocting a mixture of lemonade and iced tea in his home for many years. In the late 1960s, in a bar in Palm Springs California, Mr. Palmer ordered a mixture of lemonade and iced tea and a woman seated next to him overheard his order and said, “I’ll have that Palmer drink.” This is vague, unlikely to be true (painstakingly mixed half tea and half lemonade and then ordered it at a bar?) and unsourced. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:24, 19 July 2010 (UTC)


This tasty mix of lemonade and tea is also known as swamp water. well before Arnold Palmer ever stepped foot on a golf course this beverage has been very popular in the southern United States. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:43, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

John Daly[edit]

"A John Daly is an alcoholic mixed drink invented by Internet marketing millionaire Andrew Craig, named after pro golfer John Daly. It contains Arnold Palmer and adds vodka. A John Daly could also be made by combining vodka with lemonade and sweet tea.[7]"

This is absolute rubbish. Bars around the country have been making similar drinks before this random self-promoting nobody decided they wanted to take ownership of it.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:28, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Neutrality of "Mass-produced versions"[edit]

The entire "Mass-produced versions" section reads like a press release. In addition, it appears to be at least ten years old. Can someone verify and edit as appropriate? (talk) 21:33, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Fixed on May 7th 2012. Axlrosen (talk) 02:43, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

I need a reference to the drink mix and i think it should be in here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:34, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

"History" section[edit]

I have to say that this new "History" section, with data taken entirely from, seems neither relevant nor well-sourced. The existing "Mass-produced versions" section tells the story more succinctly. I'm inclined to say that this addition should be removed. Comments? Axlrosen (talk) 02:42, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Spam in references[edit]

Can anybody please check the links in the reference section? The so named rehab something takes me to advertising for Monster in a mobile device. I can't do much on the go now, but it looks like spam. Thanks. Sergiozambrano (talk) 22:44, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Hard variant(s)[edit]

The Variations section says, "Another hard variant, the "Arnold Palmer Hard," replaces the vodka with a malt beverage.[6]" What's the first hard variant, apparently with vodka?
