Sparkling Jalapeño Limeade
This refreshing homemade limeade is made by creating a cilantro jalapeño simple syrup and combining with fresh lime juice and sparkling water. It's the best thing to enjoy all summer long!
Servings: 8 glasses
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup agave syrup
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 cup cilantro loosely chopped
- 2 large jalapeños diced with seeds and membranes removed (about 1/2 cup)
- 1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice (about 8-10 limes)
- 1 34-oz bottle sparkling water
Add sugar, agave, and water to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, remove from heat.
Add diced jalapeño and cilantro. Stir to combine and let sit for 30 minutes. Move to refrigerator and chill until no-longer hot to the touch, about 1 hour.
Add fresh lime juice and chilled simple syrup to a large pitcher and stir. Top off with sparkling water and gently stir. Serve immediately over ice and garnish with a lime wedge and jalapeño slice.
