How to make Jalapeno and Honey Syrup

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of water

  • 1 cup of honey

  • 2 jalapeños

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Jalapeños: Wash the jalapeños thoroughly. Slice them into thin rounds. If you prefer a milder heat, you can remove the seeds and the white membrane inside the jalapeños.

  2. Combine Ingredients: In a medium saucepan, combine the water and honey. Stir until the honey is fully dissolved into the water. Add the sliced jalapeños to the mixture.

  3. Simmer: Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes. The longer you simmer, the spicier your syrup will be.

  4. Cool and Strain: Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the syrup cool completely. Once cooled, strain the syrup into a clean jar or bottle, removing the jalapeño slices.

  5. Store: Store the syrup in the refrigerator. It should last for about a month.

This Jalapeño and Honey Syrup can add a sweet and spicy kick to your cocktails. Enjoy experimenting with it in your mixology!
