Chilli Lemonade: The Perfect Summer Cocktail In Less Than 10 Minutes

Written By Srimathi Mani on Friday, March 9, 2012 | 11:29 AM

With spring rolling in at some parts of the the world and summer in other parts, I thought a very cool chilled and spicy lemonade would be perfect. The lemons in the garden look gorgeous and colorful everywhere. I was given a basket of lemons and oranges last week. They look so picture perfect and colorful on my dining table. However, they were ripening fast and I wanted to make good use of them. It had been a warm day here and so I helped myself to this spicy lemonade.


Gadgets:

Saucepan
Measuring Spoon and cups
Bottle With Lid and which is leak proof
Glasses
Cutting Board
Knife
Plate


Ingredients: 

Serves 2 People

Lemon Juice - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Green Chillies - 2 slit in the middle
Lemon Slices - a few For Garnish
Soda/ Sparkling Water or Water - 2 cups
Salt - 1/2 heaped Spoon
Ice Cubes 
Sugar and Salt - 1 tsp each for garnish


Preparation:

1. Place the saucepan on the stove. Add sugar and water and allow the sugar to dissolve. Remove from heat and cool Store in a clean bottle.

2. Add 1 tsp of salt and sugar to a plate. Take a clean glass wet its mouth with some water and dab it in the sugar salt mixture. Store in the freezer  for a few minutes until you mix the drink.

3. In a shaker of a regular bottle add 6 tbsp of simple syrup, 3 tbsp of lemon juice, 1/4th tsp of salt, Green Chillies and water/soda. Close the bottle with the lid and make sure it is spill proof. Shake the bottle 10 times to allow the spice in the chillies infuse the lemonade.

4. Remove the glass from the freezer and add ice cubes as per requirement. Using the spoon slowly pour the chilli lemonade into the lip of the spoon if using the bottle as the shaker. This helps the sugar and salt mix stay intact. Add the chillies and garnish with a lemon slice.
