A southwestern flare for a summertime drink favorite! For mild flavor, leave the jalapeno in for 4-8 hours. For a spicier beverage, leave the pepper in longer. I leave mine in for 12 hours and it has a good bit of zing. Beautiful presentation too!

Ingredients Nutrition


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

Definitely unusual! Certainly intriguing! AND, wonderfully tasty, even if I only left the jalapeno in a couple of hours! Had it when a Mexican couple came by, & they LOVED it! Will be making this again! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's Pick-A-Chef]
