Jalapeno Cucumber Lemonade Recipe
fresh lemon juice
6-8 medium lemons
peeled and cut into chunks
seeds removed, finely minced
Rosemary sprigs with lower leaves removed
Cucumber chunks or slices
Jalapeno chunks or slices
Add water, lemon juice, cucumber, jalapeno, and honey in a blender and blend until completely liquefied. Taste and add more jalapeno and/or honey, if desired. Blend again if necessary.
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.
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.
Add a little vodka or tequila to make it a tasty adult beverage.
