Make a bright, sweet, and spicy mocktail that's perfect for summer with this Jalapeño Lemon-Lime treat.

This Jalapeno Lemon-Lime Mocktail is bright, citrusy, spicy and very refreshing. It’s the perfect alcohol-free drink to serve all summer long. 

Jalapeno Lemon-Lime Mocktail

I love a good fruity drink recipe. And no matter the season, you can whip up a delicious and refreshing beverage with whatever is in season. 

In the fall, I love this Pear Ginger Lemon + Thyme Drink. During the spring, there’s nothing like a Citrus Honey Lime Mint Mocktail. And in the winter, Healthy Blood Orange Kiwi Drink.

But today’s mocktail recipe screams summer. This jalapeno lemon-lime drink is the ideal sipper on a hot, sunny afternoon outside.

How to Make Jalapeno Lemon-Lime Mocktails

You can easily shake up a big batch of these sunny drinks for a party or to store in the fridge for a quick thirst-quencher. 


Here’s what you need to make these summery mocktails:

  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice. You’ll need about 3-4 lemons for two mocktails. Choose soft, juicy lemons that have some give when you squeeze them. 
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice. Two limes should do the trick for two drinks. 
  • Agave syrup. You can also use another liquid sweetener, such as honey, bee-free honey or even maple syrup, though maple will add its own flavor to the drink. Check out this guide to The Best Healthy Sugar Alternatives + Substitutes if you’d like to reduce the sugar in the drink without sacrificing flavor.
  • Fresh jalapeños. If you’d like to tamper the heat a bit in your mocktails, you can remove the seeds from the peppers.

Serving Suggestions

I like to give these drinks an elegant presentation. 

You can rim your glasses with salt or sugar if you like. But at the very least, I like to add a garnish of fresh lime, sliced jalapeños, and mint.

Adding Alcohol

You can turn this virgin jalapeno lemon-lime mocktail recipe into an adult beverage by adding a shot of clear tequila per serving. It will taste like a spicy margarita. 


You can make a big pitcher of this fiery drink and store it in the fridge for up to one week.
