lemongrass mojitos

lemongrass mojito

Woohoo! It’s cocktail time!

I’m loving these new cocktail posts! It’s added a bit of excitement to writing that I haven’t had for awhile. Don’t get me wrong – I love writing all about food – but cocktails are so new for me and have breathed a bit of fresh air into the process. Tasting hasn’t been too shabby, either. Last night I made one with fresh raspberries and mint…coming next week!

This week I have a Lemongrass Mojito for ya’! I’m a HUGE mojito fan and the addition of fresh lemongrass takes it to a whole new level. It’s a great recipe to have for parties since everyone can just refill on their own. And feel free to just omit the lemongrass for a regular ol’ mojito – they’re great, too!
Lemongrass Mojitos

makes one pitcher

  • 5-6 lemongrass stalks
  • 10 limes; 9 juiced, 1 for garnish
  • Fresh mint (about thirty leaves or so)
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 cup white rum
  • Club soda, chilled

1) Remove any tough outer leaves and the bulb and microwave lemongrass for 30 seconds or so. Cut 6 inches off the bottom of each stalk and slice that very thinly.

2) Combine lemongrass, mint and sugar in the bottom of a pitcher and mash with muddler or wooden spoon.

3) Add the rum, lime juice, lots of ice and top with club soda (more or less to taste, I find that a small sized bottle works well) and stir well.

4) Garnish glasses with mint sprigs, lime wedges and the tops of the lemongrass stalks.

Note: If you can’t find lemongrass or you’d just like to try the standard mojito, simply omit the lemongrass.
