This is my tropical Christmas cocktail, being in Miami I shouldn't wait for a white xmas to come. I enjoy my Christmas tree with a see view and a nice sunny weather.
Holiday season: parties, celebrations, shopping, cooking, cleaning and planing the new year to come. I have been running from one place to an other with the online store and the holiday season.
It's nearly the same as having a real shop with a window.
We do sales, coupons, take pictures, write, send store products to different directories, social media, marketing, check inventory, packing, post office, answer questions online an over the phone..... plus running a home with daily emphasis on food sounds good! but not when you are just one person doing it all.
That is when I say relax and have a cocktail instead of run Lola run!
For me a cocktail is taking your time, you have to enjoy it slowly and of course socially . A cocktail is a type of flirting with the glass and the drink, changing your mood and switching you to another atmosphere were every thing is slowed down, please don't misunderstand me I am not inducing anyone to drink, just have only one.
So if you are over stressed with the holiday seasons relax and have a cocktail
2 oz rum
1 oz lemongrass
1 oz lemon juice
2 cups of water
1 cup of sugar
3 stalks of lemongrass, sliced
To prepared the syrup:
Add all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce the heat to low and keep cooking slow for 30 minutes, stir, strain and let it chill.
In a cocktail shaker with ice combine all ingredients, shake, strain and serve.
you can make the lemongrass and keep it in the refrigerator for future use...
