Hot Tamale

Pop the top on one of these spicy, booze-free lemonades.


Take a swig of Lemo-Napalm and you’re in for eye-opening refreshment. Tom Cross, a local artist, painter, and inventor, created this jalapeño-spiked lemonade years ago to quench his craving for something zesty but nonalcoholic. He began bottling the drink in 2009, but—as an idea generator, not a businessman—he grew bored with it. His friend and fellow artist, Christopher Cleary, is determined to revive the beverage, and he’s got another one brewing: a lime version with extra kick. Drink ’em straight or use as a cocktail mixer. Pick up a few bottles at Fuel’d (1405 U.S. Highway 287, Broomfield, 303-466-2170) or Biker Jim’s (2148 Larimer St., 720-746-9355) for Cinco de Mayo. lemo-napalm.com
