On the Rocks: Lemongrass Fizz

Melissa  |  October 18

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!

Ingredients:

Lemongrass-infused simple syrup (directions below)

Lemon wedge

1 1/2 shot of top-shelf gin

Soda

*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!

-XOXO Melissa
