Warm summer nights call for drinks on the patio outside. We’ve been feeling inspired by the freshness of ingredients like mint from the herb garden and one of our favourite refreshing go-tos: lemongrass.
Nutritionally, lemongrass is a good source of vitamin A and C, folic acid, magnesium, zinc, copper, iron, potassium, calcium and manganese. Lemongrass oil boasts a number of other benefits, such as being a natural astringent and antibacterial. We are especially keen on it right now as it helps to cool you down.
Here’s a recipe for a cooling Lemongrass Summer Spritzer with ginger, mint and lemon to enjoy on a hot day - not to mention how beautiful and Instagrammable it is!
