Ingredients

Jalapeno-Berry Syrup:

1 1/2 cups blueberries

1 1/2 cups raspberries 

1 1/2 cups blackberries 

3/4 cup sugar 

2 jalapenos, seeded, deveined and sliced (or leave in some seeds for extra spice) 

1 lemon, juiced 

Simple Syrup:

6 cups sugar

Lemonade:

6 cups lemon juice (about 30 lemons)

Directions

  1. For the jalapeno-berry syrup: Put the blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, sugar, jalapenos and lemon juice in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, and then reduce the heat and simmer until thick, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer and press on the fruit with a wooden spoon to get all of the liquid out. Set the berry syrup aside to cool.
  3. For the simple syrup: Mix the sugar with 6 cups water and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. For the lemonade: Pour the jalapeno-berry syrup and lemon juice into a large vat. Add 6 cups of the simple syrup and 8 cups of cold water and stir to combine. Top up the container with plenty of ice before serving.
