You're familiar with the Arnold Palmer drink, right? Several years back the Arizona Beverages company (makers of Arizona Iced Teas and various other beverages in the tall-boy cans) began offering several versions of the Arnold Palmer drink. Now, Arizona Beverages has teamed up with Nicklaus to start offering Golden Bear Lemonades.
The line began selling in New York in March 2012 and is rolling out to the rest of the United States soon.
The Golden Bear drinks from Arizona Beverages come in three flavors and the 23-oz. cans feature photos of Nicklaus with the Claret Jug after winning the 1978 British Open; of Nicklaus carrying son Gary off the green after winning the 1973 PGA Championship; and of Nicklaus as a basketball player for Upper Arlington High School.
And the three flavors? Those are:
- Lemonade with Honey and Ginseng
- Mango Lemonade
- Strawberry Lemonade
Honey and berries seem like a natural fit for a "Golden Bear." Mango? Is that Nicklaus-y? Who knows, maybe it's Jack's favorite iced tea flavor.
So what are you going to wash down lunch with today, an Arnold Palmer or a Jack Nicklaus? And if you take one of the Arizona Golden Bear lemonades and mix it with iced tea, have you created an Arnold Nicklaus or a Jack Palmer?
