This spicy yet sweet jalapeño simple syrup is perfect for taking some of your favorite drinks like our non-alcoholic margarita mocktail or non-alcoholic vodka dirty martini to a new, savory level.

It couldn’t be easier to make and is shelf stable so you can enjoy it for weeks in a variety of ways.

I wanted to create this recipe because my sister always talked about these amazing jalapeño margaritas. She said they are such a great balance of spicy and sweet.

Since non-liquid sugar doesn’t work as well in drinks and can come across as gritty, I knew a simple syrup was in order for getting that great jalapeño flavor.

I highly recommend trying it in any of these drinks and mocktails:

What is it made of?

It couldn’t be more SIMPLE. The flavor is sweet and spicy and comes from only THREE ingredients… 

  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Fresh Jalapeño

Yep, that’s it! It’s really more simple than you think. The water and sugar should always be equal parts. 

This recipe also work so well with coconut sugar, brown sugar or raw sugar.

How to make it

  • Add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a pan and whisk well
  • Add the sliced jalapeños
  • Bring to a boil whisking occasionally then remove from heat and let steep for 25 minutes

Does it matter what kind of water I use?

Not at all. Tap water or filtered work equally as well. Just don’t use any carbonated water like club soda or seltzer.

How do you store it?

It can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator, whichever you prefer. You can use a glass or plastic container just be sure it is cooled before pouring if you are going to use plastic. 

Does it need to be refrigerated?

Simple syrup does not need to be refrigerated. It handles well at room temperature.

How long do infused blends last?

You can keep infused blends for 1-2 weeks at room temperature or 3 weeks to a 1 month in the refrigerator. Once it starts to get cloudy or discolored, it is no longer good.
