I love summer drinks – this one has a little zip to it with the addition of jalapeno. If that intimidates you, just leave it out.
4 limes, juiced
1 cup sugar
2 sprigs fresh mint
½ gallon water
1 jalapeno, sliced
Ice

In a large pitcher, stir together the lime juice and sugar until dissolved. Stir in mint and mash (if you have a muddler, use that). Pour in water and mix well. Stir in jalapeno. Cover pitcher and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Add ice cubes and extra mint sprigs if you like. Serve.

For a richer (and dairy) but still cool summer drink, try this Coffee Ice-Blended treat.
