Jalapeño Business

Mix up Jalapeño Business, a new cocktail made with 7UP®. Mix freely, drink responsibly.

Don’t worry; the heat from the jalapeños won’t actually be all up in your business, unless you triple the amount or buy a hotter pepper. The strawberries, maple syrup, lime, and 7UP help mellow the heat from the jalapeños. Mix, muddle, give everything a good shake, serve over ice, and prepare to be impressed.

Tips from 7UP

A jalapeño pepper gets its heat from capsaicin, a naturally occurring compound found in all hot peppers. It is more prevalent at the top of the pepper under the stem, and in the white membrane that holds the seeds. So if you’re considering leaving out the jalapeño, don’t! Just remove the white membrane and seeds, and enjoy a milder heat from the green part of the pepper.
