Lemon Grass and Lime Cooler

This is a lovely refreshing drink which can be drunk as it is, or you can add the spirit of your choice and use it as a mixer.    I just love the blend of lemon grass with the ginger syrup and the mint gives the drink a bit of “zing” to it.

The vodka that I added gave an extra zing too..hee hee…


4 stalks of lemon grass,sliced
3 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup ginger syrup
2 cups water (sparkling or still)
1 cup fresh mint leaves
2 limes, cut into wedges


  1. Blend the lemon grass and 1 cup of  water in a blender. Strain, and pour into a large jug.
  2. Combine the lemon grass liquid, ginger syrup and rest of the water in a jug.   Mix well.  Add the mint and lime.
  3. Add your tipple of choice (optional)
  4. Drink and enjoy!
