Welcome to the Jungle, by Guns N’ Roses.
Combine the first 13 ingredients (through lemon and lime juice) in pitcher and stir well to combine. Place pitcher in fridge and let chill (this will keep the drink from diluting as much when poured over ice).
Fill 6 short glasses with ice. Skewer 1 okra pod, 2 onions and 1 olive on six skewers and place in each glass. Pour the chilled mixture over ice. Sprinkle the top of each drink with a little more pepper and top with a wedge of lime.
