Jalapeño adds a subtle kick while cilantro brings grassy, herbal notes to the classic summertime sipper. Adults might like to turn this into a cocktail recipe and  stir in a little tequila.

How to Make It

Start with fresh lemon juice in a pitcher. Combine sugar and cilantro sprigs in a mortar; grind leaves with pestle. Add the cilantro mixture and water to pitcher with lemon juice, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add sliced lime and jalapeño pepper. Let stand 30 minutes before serving over ice.

Could be really nice, but 1 full Jalapeno is far too much. I might try 1/4 Jalapeno next time...
