Lemongrass Lime Spritzer
Print Recipe

The key to this simple spritzer, which is great with vodka, gin, or just club soda, is a simple lemongrass lime homemade simple syrup. Light and refreshing!

Ingredients

Simple Syrup:

2 stalks of lemongrass, split down the middle
1 lime, sliced
1 cup sugar
1cup water

Spritzer:

1 ounce lemongrass lime simple syrup
2 ounces gin or vodka
Tonic or club soda
Lime, garnish

Directions

  1. Slice lemongrass longwise and add to a medium pot with sliced lime. Add sugar and water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved. When mixture is simmering, turn off the heat, cover, and let sit for 10-15 minutes to infuse flavors.
  2. Pour simple syrup into a squeeze bottle and let cool. If you’re in a rush, add the squeeze bottle to a bowl of ice water and it will chill down in just a few minutes.
  3. Make a cocktail by adding gin or vodka to a cocktail glass with a squeeze of simple syrup. Top with club soda or tonic and ice. Serve with a garnish lime.
