The origin of the Arnold Palmer drink is somewhat unclear, but it is believed that it was first invented in the late 1960s when a customer overheard Arnold Palmer order a mix of lemonade and iced tea. The customer said they would have what Arnold Palmer ordered, and thus, the drink was invented.

The Spiced Rum Arnold Palmer Cocktail is a variation of the Arnold Palmer that adds spiced rum to the mix. The addition of spiced rum gives the drink a unique twist and adds a bit of warmth to the otherwise refreshing beverage.
