"A surprisingly refreshing twist to an old classic. Jalapeno-infused simple syrup and cucumber water give a sweet and spicy kick. See footnotes for how to make cucumber water and jalapeno-infused simple syrup."
Jalapeno-Infused Simple Syrup: Place 1 jalapeno pepper in a saucepan with 2 cups water and 2 cups sugar; boil 3 minutes. Let steep covered for 15 minutes. Remove jalapeno pepper, slice in half lengthwise, and remove seeds; mash pepper and return to simple syrup.
Cucumber Water: put 1 sliced whole cucumber in 7 cups of water in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Seal and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
