habanero lemonade

Habanero Lemonade

Refreshing with a bold twist…

Habanero lemonade plays with fire in all the right ways. This is one seriously bold drink that’s full of contrasts: tangy and sweet, fiery and thirst quenching. And (for the adults over 21 in the room), it’s a delicious pairing with vodka or bourbon for a memorable spicy cocktail.

If habanero peppers are too fiery for you, take a look at our jalapeño lemonade instead. Jalapeño peppers are just a hint of spice compared to the extra-hot spiciness of the habanero. Plus, they may be easier to source if your grocer tends not to stock the spiciest of chilies.

Mexican chocolate milk

Mexican Chocolate Milk

Spicy and refreshing with a touch of smoke…

A refreshing glass of chilled Mexican chocolate milk is a terrific way to take the edge off the day. While you can use authentic Mexican chocolate (like Ibarra) to make a version of this delicious drink, this recipe leans instead into what you likely already have in your refrigerator and spice rack. Chocolate syrup and cinnamon imitate the flavor of what you’d find with authentic Mexican chocolate, and then we add some smoky spiciness through fiery chipotle powder.

If you prefer something hot instead, take a look at our Aztec hot chocolate recipe (also featuring chipotle powder) or our spicy hot chocolate recipe using cayenne powder.

Spicy Chai

Fiery Spiced Chai

It’ll warm you right up…

Creating a spiced chai mix with a little extra kick is easier than you think. A mix of common aromatic spices like ginger, nutmeg, and cloves and fiery cayenne pepper powder stoke the flames. This is one chai mix that’ll no doubt warm you through and through. Best of all, this recipe creates a powder that’ll keep. You can make a batch and enjoy it for weeks – or even months – to come, just a few spoonfuls and hot water each time. But our guess is the mix doesn’t last quite that long in your house.

Cayenne Pepper Smoothie

Healthy Cayenne Pepper Smoothie

A flavorful energy booster…

Smoothies are an excellent way to gain the benefits of lots of fruits and vegetables in one serving, and we love them, too, with a little kick. Sure you could add cayenne pepper to just any smoothie and it may (or may not) work taste-wise, but here’s our favorite recipe for a hearty and healthy beverage with a kick. We love the pairing of that earthy Kale flavor with the tanginess of orange, the sweetness of honey, and the spiciness of cayenne. The fact that it’s so very good for you, too, is just icing on the cake. Kale and cayenne is a potent energy boosting combo.
