Lemongrass

silversword(9A)September 26, 2010

I love lemongrass, have it growing in nearly every house I've lived in. I usually just use it in Thai recipes or added to some lemon for a nice drink when my throat is sore but If you don't like alcohol, move on by... but this recipe is really good!

Lemongrass Mojito Cocktail Ingredients

4 sprigs mint

15mL sugar syrup

45mL white rum

1/2 cup ice cubes

1 stick lemongrass

1 muddler

1 cocktail shaker

150mL soda water

Instructions

Halve the lemongrass stick widthways, finely chop bottom half and muddle with mint and sugar syrup in cocktail shaker. Add rum and ice, shake vigorously, pour all into suitable glass, top with soda water. Using the back of the knife, crush cut end of remaining half of lemongrass and garnish drink with it, crushed end inside the glass.

I grew some in very large pots this summer, but was left with only a small clump of it in one pot. The pot didn't get full sun.

Now I have it in its pot in my kitchen, where my cat has it about half eaten.

I see no sign of the stems thickening, so it must not be the kind I hoped it would be.
