LOVE this! Made it for a work potluck and a family party (summertime latin theme) and after they got over seeing the "green stuff" floating and tasted it everyone wanted the recipe. Fresh and tangy! Read More

Tasted kind of medicinal. No kick at the end but I could definitely taste the jalapenos. Mainly it wasa just sweet. Read More

Delicious! It was sweet at first but then had a kick at the end. We used two jalapeños but it drowned out the mint flavor. Will use again! Read More

LOVED this with a few big modifications: used only 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tbs powdered stevia (a naturally no-calorie herbal sweetener) and juiced 12 limes instead of 4. Our jalapeno was very potent and we only left it in for about half an hour. It was perfectly sweet tart and spicy! Yum! Read More

This was a fantastically refreshing adult limeade. I served it with my special egg salad on croissants for a light meal since the weather is so warm here. One could add their favorite vodka or tequila for a unique cocktail! Read More

Delicious! However if I were to make it again I would only use 1/2 a jalapeno since I don't handle spice very well but it was still delicious. Read More

Awesome recipe! I added another mint sprig and decreased the jalapeno. I also cut down on the sugar a bit and thought it was perfect. Read More
