Dragon’s Brew – A Jalapeno Infusion

Week 4 Recipe


This is another infusion that I used to make. Warning: it is spicy! The citrus and pepper pack a punch. You won’t need caffeine after drinking this in the morning!

Dragon’s Brew Infusion

1 jalapeno

1 orange

1 can orange juice concentrate

Slice the jalapeno, lime, orange, and lemon. Put in a pitcher with cool water, then store in a refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours. Test the infusion to see how strong it is after 12 hours (you can let it sit for longer if need be but the citrus will make the water taste soapy if left for too long). After the citrus and pepper have infused, strain or remove the slices and mix a can of orange juice concentrate with the water infusion. You might need more than one can and more than one pepper/citrus fruit depending on how much water you used or how you like the taste. Cool and enjoy!
