Jalapeno Limeade

Hopefully you know by now that I’m into adding jalapeƱos to whatever I can šŸ˜‚ I wasn’t a jalapeƱo fan until I moved to Colorado, but wow did I wish I would have added it to my drinks earlier.

Being pregnant and then breastfeeding all last summer, taught me that everyone needs a great nonalcoholic drink in their recipe box. A nice lemonade or limeade always sounded so refreshing and I never regretted making a glass!

It also didn’t hurt that it reminded me of a tasty margarita šŸ˜‰

This limeade is perfect for those hot summer days by the pool or when you’re watching your husband grill burgers while not helping at all (whoops)

This limeade can also be turned into a margarita very easily šŸ¹

How to make a jalapeƱo margarita using the limeade –

  • 1 shot (about 2 tablespoons) cointreau
  • 1 or 2 shots tequila (up to you, boo šŸ˜‰)
  • 1 cup jalapeƱo limeade
  1. Line the rim of a glass with salt or Tajin if desired
  2. Fill cup halfway with ice
  3. Pour in ingredients above.
  4. Enjoy!
