Arnold Palmer’s signature alcoholic drink is called a Hummer


Most every golfer, and millions outside of golf, know what an Arnold Palmer is: the perfect blend of iced tea and lemonade. It's delightful. And, naturally, that's Palmer's signature drink -- at least of the non-alcoholic variety.

However, Arnold Palmer's favorite alcoholic drink sounds even better than an Arnold Palmer, and it's called a Bay Hill Hummer.

Canadian journalist Adam Stanley shared the Hummer recipe, which is mint liquor (dark creme de cacao), brandy, Ketel One vodka (his favorite) and -- the special ingredient -- vanilla Haagen-Dazs ice cream. It's basically an alcoholic Shamrock Shake, and it sounds incredible.

Stanley said the Bay Hill record for Hummers consumed in a single night is six, and that's because, despite the ice cream touch, the Hummer packs a punch. That sounds like a challenge we'd want to accept.
