Thirsty Thursday: Captain Palmer
The country club classic gets a mischievous makeover
It’s no secret that there’s something a little boring about the classic Arnold Palmer. Sure, the fruity blend of tea and lemonade is delicious, but sipping on one can make us feel like we should be knitting sock while sitting in a rocking chair, and joining our grandma for an early bird dinner.
After a hard day at work (or play), conventional refreshments just won’t cut it. Even good girls need something with a little kick. That’s why we love the Captain Palmer, a naughty take on the country club classic that combines Captain Morgan spiced rum with Owl’s Brew tea and a squeeze of lemon. (See? Still technically an Arnold Palmer.)
A little misbehavior goes a long way, so we don’t mind giving you permission to indulge in one (or four) of these sinful sippers. It might even be good for you! Plus, the Darjeeling tea you’re mixing with your booze is known to help fight the free radicals that can cause disease. (Does a cocktail made with anti-oxidant tea count as a healthy snack? We think so.)
3 ounces Owl’s Brew “The Classic”
1 ounces Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum or Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum
1/2 ounce lemon juice or fresh squeezed Lemon
1. Sweeten with 1 tablespoon agave, or sweetener of choice, and 1/2 ounce of orange juice.
2. Garnish with an orange. Shake and pour into martini glass or pour it over ice in a rocks glass.
