A few years ago Luke and I went to a restaurant in Salt Lake called Frida Bistro. I wrote a post about it here.

While the food didn’t impress us much, the drinks and dessert were amazing! I had a pineapple jalepeno limeade that still haunts me.

I have been trying to drink more water in recent months and have been playing around with infusing it with different fruit combos. Blackberry Lemon is a really great one, find it here. Grapefruit Rosemary is NOT. So bitter!

Well, I wanted to try something inspired by my drink at Frida Bistro so I came up with this pineapple jalepeno lemon infused water. I’m so happy with how it turned out – sweet and spicy! You can adjust the heat by adding less or more jalepeno. I also love this water without the lemon. I haven’t tried it with other citrus fruits but I’m sure they would sub in just fine, especially lime.

And before I get to the recipe, did you know jalepenos are LOADED with vitamins (C, K, E, most of the B complex), minerals (potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese), and antioxidants? This water is a great way to get the benefits without chomping down on the raw pepper! Guess what, pineapple is packed with goodness, too! Not only is it the only natural source of an enzyme called bromelain, it is also packed with vitamins and minerals (C, copper, thiamine, B-1, B-6, magnesium, folate, riboflavin, niacin, iron). So, there you go – this water is AWESOME!
