Part iced tea, part lemonade, the Arnold Palmer is a celebrated summer favorite that’s undeniably refreshing. Originating in the late 1960s, this thirst-quenching concoction was named after the world-famous golfer after he ordered the combination after a long day on the golf course. Blending freshly prepared raspberry iced tea, fresh cannabis-infused lemonade, and muddled raspberries and blackberries, this alcohol-free drink is courtesy of Herb Somm Jamie Evans.

Yield: 1 serving
Target Dose: 7 mg CBD | 2 mg THC per drink (using Cannabis-infused Lemonade) or your preferred dose (using commercially made CBD or THC tincture of your choice, see note below)
One 8-ounce (240-ml) sterilized Mason jar
1 cup (240 ml) water
2 raspberry tea bags
4 to 5 fresh raspberries
4 to 5 fresh blackberries
5 ounces (150 ml) unsweetened raspberry tea
5 ounces (148 ml) Cannabis-infused Lemonade
Fresh berries, a lemon wheel, and a thyme sprig, for garnish
Using a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil, then remove from the heat. Add the teabags and steep for 4 minutes. Remove the teabags, then pour the raspberry tea into an 8-ounce (240-ml) Mason jar and set in the refrigerator to cool.
Once the tea is chilled, fill a highball glass with ice, then add the raspberries and blackberries to the shaker tin. Muddle the fruit together until the juices release, then add 5 ounces (150 ml) of the chilled raspberry tea.
Cover and dry shake (no ice) vigorously for 10 seconds, then strain the liquid through a fine-mesh strainer into the highball glass.
Add the cannabis-infused lemonade, then stir together using a bar spoon.
Add fresh berries, lemon wheel, and thyme sprig to garnish.
