The ‘Summer of Limoncello Cocktails‘ series takes a southeast Asian detour in the Limoncello Mule with Lemongrass.
Lemongrass is an easy herb to grow in the home garden. If you’ve purchased some stalks, you can use the left over scraps from the bottom to grow another plant. It can be as simple as putting the ends in water by the windowsill, changing the water daily until roots form. They can then be planted in the garden and used in cocktails.
