Jalapeño Simple Syrup

For Jalapeño Margaritas! 

What you need: 
3 glass jars with lids
12 oz. jar of sliced jalapeños 
8 limes

1. I used the emulsion blender on the jar of jalapeños with jalapeño juice to break them up and release heat. 

2. Juice about 8-10 limes. Don't be lazy here!!! Fresh is best and it's totally worth it! 

3. Depending on your measure of sweetness, half the jar to a full jar of sugar (half was good for me, but you do you!)

4. Add it all to a pot, plus 1/2 - 1 jalapeño jar of water (depends on how much lime juice you squeezed). Bring this to a rolling boil for 3-5 minutes. Then turn off heat and let cool. 

5. Divide into jars. This is good for 1 week in fridge and 6 months frozen. 

Just add a tablespoon or 2 to your favorite margarita and you will never look back!!!! Enjoy!
