Homemade Jalapeno Soda
So you’ve already made your jalapeno simple syrup for an ultimate jalapeno margarita, or a jalapeno lime margarita, and you’re in love. Here’s another really tasty way to enjoy more of your jalapeno syrup – a homemade jalapeno soda! (Or jalapeno “pop” in the neck of the woods I’m from!) It might sound a little strange, but if you think about it, it’s got everything you love. Bubbles, a little sweet (but not too sweet), and a little heat. And it’s so easy you don’t even need a recipe, but there’s one here anyway, just for inspiration.
Jalapeno Simple Syrup
The star of this show is the jalapeno simple syrup. If you haven’t made it yet, what are you waiting for? Make it now and you’ll have it cooled and ready for a homemade jalapeno soda in no time.
Making your Soda
The best thing about flavoring your own soda is that you are in control! There are no artificial colors or flavorings, and you get to decide how sweet and strong your jalapeno soda is! Do you feel empowered yet??
You’ll start by pouring a few tablespoons of jalapeno simple syrup over ice in a large glass. Fill the glass with club soda and add a few slices of fresh jalapeno. Give it a stir and a taste….. do you love it? Add more simple syrup if you like, I usually go for 3 or 4 tablespoons.
And there you have it – homemade jalapeno soda (pop)!
P.S – If you’ve got some orange simple syrup in the fridge, make a homemade orange soda!
P.P.S. – A shot of jalapeno tequila or grapefruit vodka wouldn’t be a bad call either. : )
