Arnold Palmer

Arnold Palmer, the USA golf legend, as essentially responsible for the global polularisation of the sport. With a charismatic demeanor and a powerful swing, Palmer amassed hundreds victories, including seven major championships.

For the Nosey Chef, we are more interested in the drink he invented. Off the course, Palmer’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to co-create the iconic “Arnold Palmer” beverage, a mix of iced tea and lemonade. The beverage’s origin dates back to the 1960s when Palmer reportedly requested the mix at a restaurant. So the story goes that a lady saw Palmer order the drink and went to the bar asking for an ‘Arnold Palmer.’ The name then stuck.
