The Mighty Grasshopper! (A cocktail with lemongrass syrup)

I can proudly declare that I have invented my first cocktail! 🙂 It has already gained popularity amongst my friends and I am sure it has the potential to steal your heart as well.

It is refreshing, slightly sweet and a little sparkly. Safe to say, my favorite cocktail. It contains gin, basil, lemongrass syrup, sparkling water and ice (recipe bellow). Never had a basil cocktail? You are missing out! Give it a try tonight and let me know what you think!

You can find the recipe for lemongrass syrup here: and the grasshopper recipe bellow!
