The fragrant, citrus flavour of lemongrass goes beautifully well with mint and rum. Use the lemongrass stalk as a stirrer in this delicious mojitos.
- Remove the tough outer layers from the lemongrass. Finely chop the bulbous parts and reserve the stalks.
- Divide the chopped lemongrass, sugar, lime wedges and mint leaves between 2 tall glasses and use the end of a rolling pin or a wooden spoon handle to muddle (mash) the ingredients together, releasing their flavour.
- Divide the rum between the glasses, muddle again, then fill up with crushed ice and top up with soda water. Stand a lemon grass stalk and a mint sprig up in each glass to serve.
