From: http://www.veggiebelly.com/2010/07/jalapeno-lemonade.html

  • Yield: 8 servings ( Serving Size: 1 cup )


  • 1 whole(s) jalapeno peppers
  • 1 cup(s) sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 7 cup(s) water
  • 6 whole(s) lemons to make 1 cup of juice


for jalapeno sugar syrup

1 jalapeno, cut into 4 pieces (remove seeds for a milder lemonade)

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

1/8th teaspoon salt

other ingredients

1 cup lemon juice (juice of about 6 large lemons), strained

6 cups water

Place the chopped jalapeno and 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Continue boiling till about half the water has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Then add sugar and salt and stir. Reduce heat to low and simmer just until sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes. Let the syrup cool for about 5 minutes.

Place a strainer over a pitcher. Pour the jalapeno sugar syrup, lemon juice and 6 cups water through the strainer into the pitcher. Stir well. Serve chilled over ice cubes.

For tequila spiked jalapeno lemonade recipe: follow the recipe above, but instead of 6 cups water use 5 cups water + 1/2 cup (or more!) tequila. Serve on ice.
