L is for Lemonade......with a kick

Have you ever tried jalapeno lemonade? It is incredibly good, especially when mixed with Tito's Handmade Vodka which is made right here in Austin. It's pretty simple, make a standard lemonade base and add a sliced jalapeno to it. The longer you leave the jalapeno in the more intense the heat. I use this recipe from my power co-op magazine. Always use fresh lemons and remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeno for less heat. I found I could leave it in an hour or two and got just enough heat without being overpowering. At first you won't taste the heat, wait for it.
