Expert Tips

Make the syrup up to 4 days in advance and use it over the course of a few days. Make a large batch for a party, for your guests to flavor their drinks with.

I enjoy homemade simple syrup to flavor my drinks. I recently ventured into a little spice in my cocktail, and have fallen completely in love with the burst of warm flavor. I found that steeping my simple syrup with a jalapeno has really expanded my world of spicy drinks. I started with chili pepper ice cubes and felt that the flavor wasn't even, then I made syrup and it just worked. I started with a tequila punch, and have had a difficult time getting past it… because it's so good! You can make the syrup a few days ahead of time or flavor it with the chile of your choice.

Directions

  • 1 In a saucepan over a high flame, add a sliced jalapeno and water. Bring to a boil.
  • 2 Then add in sugar and mix until completely dissolved. Remove from flame and set aside for 5 minutes, allowing jalapeño syrup to cool. Remove the jalapenos or, if you prefer, pour into your drink.
  • 3 In a pitcher add in tequila, lemon juice, and lime juice. Stir to combine. Then add in jalapeno syrup and give it a stir.
  • 4 Fill 3 to 4 glasses with ice then divide tequila/jalapeno mixture among glasses evenly.
  • 5 Top each glass with sparkling water evenly. Mix and enjoy.
