Lemonade … Jalapeño Lemonade



L is for Lemonade …


Jalapeño Lemonade! 


Okay, so now you probably think I’m crazy right? Well trust me on this one. It is amazing, refreshing with just a hint of zing! 




2 cups fresh lemon juice, fresh squeezed


7 cups water, ice cold


1 cup granulated sugar


2 lemons, sliced into rounds


1 jalapeno, fresh


8 cups ice, for serving





1. Stir water, freshly squeezed lemon juice and sugar until sugar is dissolved.


2. Add lemon rounds to mixture.


3. With sharp knife, poke 5-10 holes in whole jalapeno and add to lemonade.


4. Put in fridge to chill for 30 minutes.


5. Serve over ice.





Tips: Leave Jalapeño in the lemonade for 4-8 hours for a mild flavor, more for a more intense zing. I usually leave mine in for 10 hours.



Let me know what you think, when you try it?
