He tells the person next to him who he is, and they buy him a drink.

"I'm back."

Oh sorry. Wrong Arnold.

Bartender, can I get a me with a twist of lemon?

An Arnold Palmer is probably the best drink that doesn't have booze in it.

If I were him I'd order a "me."

Guys, he's classier than that.  Dad caddied for him once, and says the man is "pure class".  Calling it a "Mr. Palmer" sounds just about right.

/Mind you, he tells that story less for "I caddied for Arnold Palmer", and more for "My father pulled me and my brothers out of Catholic school so that we could all caddy for [insert famous golfer name here at some tournament], and then when we all got Saturday detention for missing school, went in and did them himself."

I used to bartend at a rich old man bar. Their main drinks were Icepicks or if they wanted to be healthy, a Screwdriver, aka a Vodka Sandwich.

I attended a relativity seminar many years ago where the lecturer was Australian physicist Roy Kerr, eponymous discoverer of the Kerr solution (to Einstein's field equations).  The most famous solution is Schwarzschild's, which describes the metric around a spherically symmetric mass.  Kerr's solution describes the field around a rotating axially symmetric mass (e.g., around a star such as the sun).  Partway through the seminar it became obvious Dr. Kerr was going to have a make a reference to his solution and I'm sure I was not the only attendee wondering how he was going to do it.  When the time came when anyone else would have uttered the words "the Kerr solution", Dr. Kerr said "the spinning Schwarzschild solution".  Bryce Dewitt spoke up, asking "I'm sorry.  The what?" and Dr. Kerr relented: "oh, alright.  The Kerr solution".

Pfft, I waited on him and his friends once, back in the early 90's, at a steakhouse in Austin. Just a bunch of drunk assholes, really. They all thought it was a big hoot because Arnold puked all over the men's room. This was a fairly high-end establishment, but they were carrying on like it was Burger King after the bars let out.

Around the same time, I waited on Ruth Buzzi and Richard Moll. Now those were some classy people.

It was their wedding night and after two rounds of lovemaking Rocky rolled over ready to sleep.  "Arnold Palmer never stopped at two," he heard his new bride say. They went at again and after, right when he was drifting off to sleep, she said,"Arnold Palmer never stopped at three."  After the fourth time Rock collapsed in complete exhaustion only to hear that sweet voice whisper, "Arnold Palmer never quit at four."

He crawled out of bed, limped to the phone and started to dial. "Who are you calling?" "Arnold Palmer. I going to find out the par for this hole."

Somebody give subby a wedgie. I expected ingredients, or at least serving suggestions.

Here's a much better article on  what Arnold Palmer drinks:

http://www.badgolfer.com/departments/features/beers-arnold-palmer-11 7. htm

TL/DR: "Palmer has been partial enough to Ketel One that he's even signed a marketing agreement with the company",and for beer he prefers Michelob Ultra and "he does have loyalty to his own hometown brewery" (Latrobe, PA) including Rolling Rock Green Light" (which he calls "Greens")

Well you are kinda right my brother had aspartame poisoning years ago. A sugar free gum he chewed had it. And he chewed a lot of it. He had problems remembering things for a while until doctors told him that he had aspartame poisoning. He quit using that gum and he hasent had problems since.
