Jalapeno and cilantro lemonade

This is a recipe for taste opposites. If there are chocolates with salt (and they have a lot of fans!), There are also sharp sweet lemonades. We tried a provocative recipe in which the main ingredients are jalapenos and cilantro.

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (it will take about 5 lemons)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 jalapenos peppers
  • 2 cups chopped cilantro
  • 9 glasses of water

Before squeezing juice from lemons, our advice is to peel the zest from them. You won’t need it for lemonade, but it’s so good to use it for various pastries! So if in your plans, for example, a cupcake – save it for him.
Squeeze the lemons. By the way, there is one way to get a little more juice from each lemon: for this, before making the juice, put the lemon in the microwave for 20 seconds.
Add 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to the squeezed juice, heat the mixture in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves.
Cut the peppers and toss them in a saucepan with lemon mix, bring the mixture to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add 2 cups of chopped cilantro. Cover, let stand for 3 minutes. After that, you can remove all the filling from the liquid, then put the lemonade to cool.
The remaining water must be added to the chilled liquid. Remove the lemonade to cool for another hour in the refrigerator. Add ice before serving. Glasses can be decorated with slices of pepper or sprigs of cilantro.
