Lemongrass+Lime Tea

I made this a couple of weeks back when the weather was scorching hot. It's really easy to make and very refreshing especially if you have it chilled. I added lime to give it more zest. You also add little bit of Sprite or 7-UP for the slightly sweet fizziness to it.

What you need:

3 stalks lemongrass, take only the white portion and bash it a little
1 litre water
enough rock sugar - adjust according to your preference
lime juice and lime slices for garnish (optional)
plenty of ice

What you do:

1. Boil the water with the lemongrass over medium heat for about 30-45mins
2. Add rock sugar and stir till it dissolves
3. Strain it and let it cool before you chill it, add abit more cool boiled water if you think that the flavour is too overpowering
4. Serve with plenty of ice and a squeeze of lime, garnish with lime slices if you like

For a healthier version, I usually replace the rock sugar with honey. But only add the honey when the drink is warm and not hot. Sam.
