Description

The Jalapeno Cucumber Lemonade mocktail recipe has become increasingly popular as more people seek out refreshing non-alcoholic drink options. This unique recipe blends the tartness of fresh-squeezed lemon juice with the crisp coolness of cucumber and a hint of spice from jalapeno peppers.


Ingredients

3 c. water

¾ c. fresh lemon juice (6-8 medium lemons)

1 large cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks

2 t. jalapeno pepper, seeds removed, finely minced

1/3 c. honey, preferably local 


Optional Garnishes:
Rosemary sprigs with lower leaves removed
Cucumber chunks or slices
Jalapeno chunks or slices
Lemon wedges
This recipe is great on its own or mixed with vodka or tequila for an adults-only treat.


Instructions

  1. Add water, lemon juice, cucumber, jalapeno, and honey to a blender and blend until completely liquefied. Taste and add more jalapeno and/or honey, if desired. Blend again if necessary.

  2. Pour liquid through a fine mesh strainer to remove any larger particles and transfer mixture to a large pitcher. Place in refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

  3. To serve, pour over ice and garnish with slices of lemon, cucumber, and/or jalapeno. For a fancier presentation, thread chunks of cucumber and jalapeno onto sprigs of rosemary to garnish each glass.
