Happy Friday SB Chic readers. I went to the lemon festival last Sunday and was majorly inspired for today’s post. Lemongrass is such an accessible and easy ingredient to incorporate into a cocktail, but I rarely see it used. Not only does it double as a trusty stirrer, the aroma and subtle flavor is oh-so-delightful! Enjoy!
Lemongrass-infused simple syrup (directions below)
1 1/2 shot of top-shelf gin
*Squeeze lemon wedge into a glass, add a small splash of lemongrass-infused simple syrup, gin, and a heavy splash of soda. Shake well and serve on the rocks with a twist and lemongrass stalk.
Lemongrass-infused simple syrup ingredients:
Equal parts granulated sugar and water
1 lemongrass stalk
*Bring water to a boil and add sugar. Take off heat and once sugar has completely dissolved, add lemongrass. I find that it helps to cut the stalks into 1-2 inch pieces, and smash to allow all of the flavor to get released into the simple syrup. Let sit for an hour, strain, and voila!
