Cayenne Lemonade

Sweet tart spice!

For only four ingredients, there’s a whole lot of flavor going on in this cayenne lemonade. The tart of fresh lemons is met head on with the earthy sweetness of maple syrup, only to be trumped with the simmering heat of cayenne pepper spice. It’s spot on for a cayenne maple syrup cleanse and also quite unique as a summer refresher.
