One of my favorite parts of the weather warming up is experimenting with cocktail and mocktail recipes like this one made with Drink for Joy tea.

It’s refreshing, crisp, and the perfect drink for any occasion.

If you’re anything like me, you grew up drinking Arnold Palmer’s. My parents tried to keep us away from them because of the sugar content, but my school sold them which made them easily accessible.

As I grew up and realized I had quite the intolerance to sugar, I also realized that I couldn’t drink these types of drinks anymore. Instead I switched to low sugar beverages, and homemade iced teas and lemonades.

When I came across these teas from Drink For Joy, I immediately got excited at the chance to experiment with some cocktails and mocktails. I’ve been meaning to replicate this iced tea lemonade mocktail for weeks and let me tell you, it’s delicious!

All About Drink for Joy

I like to keep my recipes low in sugar. Partially because of my own sensitivity, but also because I know a lot of people also have intolerances to it. Usually, it’s pretty hard to find an iced tea that is good, but low in sugar, which is part of the reason I love Drink For Joy.

I used their OG Hint of Sweet flavor for this drink, but they have two other flavors as well. Meyer Lemon Ginger and Strawberry Mint. They’re made with a few grams of cane sugar, premium iced tea, and organic hemp extract.

The ingredients allow you to experience the Arnold Palmer like taste without the ridiculous amount of sugar. The blend creates the perfect recipe of relaxing and delicious.

If you give this cocktail a try to make sure I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! As always, reach out with any questions, comments, etc. You can send me an email here or shoot me a DM on Instagram.
