Picture of Home Made Telemade!
Hi guys!

This Instructable should teach you how to make your very own half-lemonade half-tea beverage. It's very refreshing and should only take around 10, 15 minutes tops.

This is my first Instructable, so please grade harshly (mention any needed improvements, for reference towards future Instructables).


(I know some people call it an "arnold palmer", but telemade just seemes more fun...)

To make your very own Telemade, you will need...

1. Generic flavored tea bags

2. A coffee maker OR a pan AND a stove

3. A glass

4. Water

5. A lemon

6. Sugar OR artificial sweetener

7. Ice

8. A refrigerator

9. Cuttingboard

10. Teaspoon

11. Knife

Step 2: Coffee pot setup

Get as many cups of water as you want into the coffee maker, but keep in mind for later that you need to mix equal parts tea and lemonade. Put the tea bags in the caraff (with the strings hanging out) and begin the cycle. Hopefully, the tea bags will steep as the hot water is being poured out.

Alternitively, boil water in a pan and steep the tea in that.

Step 3: Freeze it.

When the tea is done, put it in your refrigerator.

Step 4: Lemon Setup

To start the lemonade, you need a nice, juicy lemon, right? Yeah! But to get your lemon to that nice, juicy, desiered state, I'll teach you a little trick. After setting it on a clean surface, put pressure on it with your palm and start rolling it around. When you hear lots of sloshing and/or the scent of lemon, you're done.

Step 5: The actual lemonade

Put 1/2 cup of ice in the glass. Now cut the ends off of the lemon. Next cut the lemon in half and squeeze it into the glass. You can take the rest of the lemon and put it in the glass at the end. Then add 1 tablespoon of sugar, and put HALF of the water you would use to make a full glass of lemonade, the other half will be tea.

Step 6: Making the telemade.

 It's called "Arnold Palmer",  not "Telemade".

Yay the pics are finally here! Feel free to comment.
Not knocking you, but this is usually called an 'Arnold Palmer', after the golfer.

Oh, yeah... I forgot about that...
So how did the name "telemade" come about? I like it, as people laugh when I try to pronounce "Arnold Palmer" - good drink!
