I have been experimenting with soda syrups recently, and I wanted to try out a jalapeño based syrup. Jalapeños have a great level of spice and a bright, vegetal flavor. The combination of the jalapeño flavor and the sweet syrup creates a refreshing drink when mixed with soda water. Enjoy with spicy food or on a hot afternoon — the heat of the peppers actually cools you down!

Jalapeño Soda Syrup

Ingredients:

  • 4 jalapeños, seeds and white membrane removed
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water

Instructions:

  1. Prepare jalapeños. Slice in half, seed and remove membrane, and score on the diagonal.
  2. Add sugar and water to a small saucepan.
  3. Add jalapeños.
  4. Bring to simmer over medium heat.
  5. Cook until the liquid has reduced to half, about 1o minutes.
  6. Pour one shot of syrup over ice in a large glass and top with soda water.
  7. Enjoy!
