Lemongrass cooling drink

Lyrical Lemongrass! hehehe actually, nothing to do with LL ;P

I was served the lemongrass drink as a welcome drink when I was at Basil Leaf Restaurant. The weather was so hot when I arrived and the drink really really cooled me down.

Very smooth and minty cool down the throat, tasteless but very lemongrassy fragrant. I fell in love with it... but have no idea how to make it. But after some trial and error. I think I manage to make the drink.

- 1 tsp of sugar
- 6 to 7 stalk of lemongrass.
- 5 liter of water

1# Clean lemongrass and chop them into pieces/chunks.
2# Add them into a pot and boil with the water.
3# Add in sugar when water is boiling and turn off after 1 minute.
4# Let the water to cool and strain.
5# Refrigerate or serve it with ice and a few pieces of mint leaves.

I kept mine in a cooler and drank it when I felt hot and thirsty. Works wonders I tell you.

I wished I could take this drink over to the beach, under the hot sun, and enjoy a glass of cool iced lemongrass drink.

p/s I’ll be at Redang and won’t be back until Monday. Don’t miss me ;P
