Lemongrass Drink

recipe image


  • 1 handf fresh lemongrass leaves, preferable the soft
  • 12 Fresh green lemongrass stalks, top half only
  • 3 cups Cold water
  • 1/4 cup Sugar syrup
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Water


  1. 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.
  2. Serve in tall glasses over ice.
  3. 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.
  4. Cool.
