Directions

  1. In a large pitcher, stir together the lime juice and sugar until dissolved. Stir in mint sprigs, and mash with a wooden spoon to release some of the oils. Pour in water, and mix well. Mix in jalapeno slices. Put a lid on the pitcher, and refrigerate 8 hours, or overnight.

LOVE this! Made it for a work potluck and a family party (summertime, latin theme) and after they got over seeing the "green stuff" floating and tasted it, everyone wanted the recipe. Fresh and tangy!

Tasted kind of medicinal. No kick at the end, but I could definitely taste the jalapenos. Mainly, it wasa just sweet.

Perfect!!! The jalapeno (1) was just enough for a little kick. Did not taste the mint leaves, will add more next time. Delicious!!

Delicious! It was sweet at first, but then had a kick at the end. We used two jalapeños, but it drowned out the mint flavor. Will use again!

LOVED this with a few big modifications: used only 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tbs powdered stevia (a naturally no-calorie herbal sweetener), and juiced 12 limes instead of 4. Our jalapeno was very potent, and we only left it in for about half an hour. It was perfectly sweet, tart, and spicy! Yum!

This was a fantastically refreshing adult limeade. I served it with my special egg salad on croissants for a light meal since the weather is so warm here. One could add their favorite vodka or tequila for a unique cocktail!

Made this for a Cinco de Mayo potluck at work today, fabulous! Everyone loved it! Very unique, crisp, and refreshing. I doubled the recipe and used one very large jalapeno (seeds removed).

Delicious! However, if I were to make it again, I would only use 1/2 a jalapeno, since I don't handle spice very well, but it was still delicious.
