Picture yourself poolside under a tropical sun as you sip an ice-cold pineapple-mango cocktail with just a hint of jalapeño heat. Okay, now make that vision – at least the cocktail part – come to life in a matter of minutes with the 7UP Tropical Snakebite.
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.
