The Boston Red Sox have been hitting headlines with booze news, since a WHDH-Boston television report was released saying that Josh Beckett, John Lester and John Lackey were drinking beer in the dugout during the season. Well in other alcohol and sports related news, one of golf's most well known figures will be releasing his own drink. No, we're not talking about John Daly here. Arnold Palmer is set to finally release a "hard" version of his iced tea and lemonade mix. 

The drink will be put out by Hornell Brewing Company, which is directly linked to AriZona Beverages. Arnold Palmer is one of AriZona's most popular drinks with a $1 price that can not beat for a nice tall can. There has not been word out, yet, if the hard drink will be $1 also, but that would definitely be interesting to see. 

The drink will be five percent alcohol and be sold in 24 ounce cans. The recipe will be simple as the company and will mix AriZona iced tea and lemonade for the taste. 

Spiked Tea and Mike's Hard Lemonade are just two of the big name brands of spiked drinks with low alcohol percentages on the market right now. Before you could just put the two together and you've got yourself an Arnold Palmer combo. 

Hornell Brewing and Rexam, the makers of the cans, are making life easier now for responsible drinkers. Arnold Palmer has raked in millions of dollars after the drink's release only 10 years ago. There's a light version, zero-calorie version and now you can add hard version to the list.
