Lemongrass Simple Syrup

Embue your simple syrup with the refreshing zing of lemongrass! It’s an easy way to incorporate lemongrass into a number of dishes without the work of pounding or cooking it all the way down. Use lemongrass simple syrup anywhere you might add sweetness, like cocktails or desserts. If you’re baking or making ice cream, keep in mind it is a liquid sweetener, so adjust appropriately for the added liquid content.

How to Make Lemongrass Simple Syrup


  • 1 Lemongrass stalk
  • 100g Water
  • 100g White Sugar


  1. Breakdown lemongrass to roughly 2 inch long pieces, halve them and bruise and pound them up a bit.
  2. Mix water, sugar, and 6-8 pieces of lemongrass in a small saucepan and heat it up until boiling.
  3. Once all the sugar dissolves, remove from the heat and allow it to cool. At this point, taste the syrup. If satisfied, strain out the lemongrass and store the syrup in the fridge for a couple weeks. If a stronger flavor is desired, leave the lemongrass in the syrup and allow it to continue infusing in the fridge.
