    I looked a couple of places and couldn't find a date. His website says.....

    The "Arnold Palmer" has long been a beverage known for its widely refreshing taste and ability to revive the senses. Arnold Palmer created the drink many years ago after requesting a mix of ice tea and lemonade. For many years it has been served in upscale restaurants, health clubs and clubhouses around the globe.

    It was first poured for the golfer at the Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, CO. Arnold has been drinking them since the '70s. Although the drink has been around for far longer than that he is why it is as famous and popular as it it now.

    During the 1960's.

    "One evening after a long day of designing a course in Palm Springs during the 1960s, Arnold Palmer stepped up to a bar and asked the bartender for a mixture of lemonade and iced tea. A woman sitting next to him overheard what he ordered and told the bartender, “I’ll have that Palmer drink.” From that moment on, this refreshing lemonade-iced tea beverage became known as an “Arnold Palmer,” and its name gradually spread throughout the golfing world and beyond into mainstream America."
