Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients

For the Lemon Grass Simple Syrup:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 Tablespoons Gourmet Garden Lemon Grass

For the beverage:

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries washed and hulled
  • 1/2 cup Lemon Grass Simple Syrup
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1/2 cup dark rum

Instructions

For the Lemon Grass Simple Syrup:

  1. Bring the water and sugar to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Once boiling, remove from heat and add 3 Tablespoons of Gourmet Garden Lemon Grass Whisk in the lemon grass until well blended. Let cool.

For the Cocktail:

  1. Place fresh strawberries, 1/2 cup cooled Lemon Grass Simple Syrup, ice and rum in the jar of your blender. Blend on high until all the ingredients are combined and cocktail is smooth. Poor immediately into glasses and serve.
  2. Note: If you have a robust blender like a Blendtec the ice crush / milkshake setting works well for smooth results. For other blenders, you may have to pour the daiquiri through a sieve to remove seeds if you want it to be completely smooth.

Recipe Notes

Store remaining simple syrup in a covered jar and place in the refrigerator for future use.
