This homemade morning energizer invigorates the senses with a spicy syrup featuring McCormick® Red Pepper. Tart apple and crisp cucumber muddled together with sweet, sparkling clementine juice balance out the heat.
For the Cayenne Pepper Syrup, mix sugar, water and red pepper in small saucepan. Bring to simmer on medium heat. Simmer until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Cool. (This makes enough syrup for 8 drinks.)
For the Fizz ‘n Fruit Energizer, divide apple and cucumber among 2 beverage glasses. Pour 2 tablespoons of the Cayenne Pepper Syrup into each glass; muddle with a muddler or wooden spoon. Fill each glass with ice cubes. Top each with 1/2 cup sparkling clementine juice. Garnish with cucumber slices, if desired.
