In the late 1960s, the restautant began serving a vodka-spiked version of Arnold's namesake drink, which is a combination of lemonade and ice tea. Served in a Baccarat etched glass, with an original Osar's Delmonico iced-tea spoon and silver straw. The Recpie can found on page 38 of The Delmonico Way.
