*Lemongrass Simple Syrup Recipe
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 Lemongrass tea bag (Tazo Lemongrass Orange Tea is a favorite of ours)
In a small sauce pan combine water, sugar and Lemongrass tea bag, bring to a boil, stir until sugar is dissolved. Turn off the heat and allow the simple syrup to cool. Refrigerate (and can be stored for up to a month in an air tight container in the refrigerator).
