Watermelon-Jalapeno Cooler Marcela Valladolid

Notes:

This was GREAT! Although don't expect a lot of heat from adding the chile to the simple syrup. You just get a faint taste of it at the end (we even used a whole serrano. However, we brought this to a 4th of July party and people just raved about it! It's sweet for sure, but such a great non-alcoholic option for a party. Very refreshing :

Yummy! We already had some cilantro-infused simple syrup on hand so we just used that and then added about 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper. Great little kick at the end. Can't wait to try it with her simple syrup next time.

Pretty good as is, but I blended the jalapeno into the drink for a little extra heat. Also, tried it with vodka and tequila. It is AWESOME with tequila. Next time: frozen margaritas!

This recipe was really good! My friend and I have been watching our calories so instead of 1/2 cup of sugar we did 1/4 sugar and 1/4 cup splenda or equal and it tasted delicious! My only negative feedback would be we couldn't taste the jalapeno at all. Next time I am either going to use a whole jalapeno or probably blend in some of the jalapeno.
