Category: Beverages

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Handful fresh lemongrass
  • -leaves; preferable the soft
  • -grassy tops -or-
  • 12 Fresh green lemongrass
  • -stalks; top half only
  • 3 c Cold water
  • 1/4 c Sugar syrup


1 c Sugar
1 c Water

Cut the leaves or tops into 2-inch lengths, measure out 1 1/2 cups,
loosely packed. In a blender, combine the tops, water and syrup and blend
at high speed until the water is a vivid green and the lemongrass leaves
are reduced to fine, short, needlelike pieces, about 1 minute. Strain
through a very fine sieve into a large pitcher, spoon off and discard green
foam. Taste to see if it's sweet enough, and add more syrup if you like.
Serve in tall glasses over ice.

Sugar syrup: Combine sugar and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and
cook until liquid has thickened and colored slightly, about 5 minutes.
