1 jalapeño, cut into four pieces
7 cups water, separated
1 cup sugar
1/8 tsp.. salt
1 cup lemon juice (about 6 large lemons, strained)

 

Place the chopped jalapeño (seeds removed for a milder lemonade) and 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Continue boiling until approximately half the water has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add sugar and salt and stir. Reduce heat to low and simmer just until sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes. Let syrup cool for about 5 minutes.

Place a strainer over a pitcher. Pour jalapeño-sugar syrup, lemon juice and 6 cups water through strainer into pitcher. Stir well. Serve chilled over ice.
