How to Make Lemongrass, Mint & Lime Ice-Tea

This refreshing ice-tea recipe is an easy-to-make Osa favorite! Enjoy!




This is a delicious, refreshing, home-made ice-tea that is the perfect drink on a hot afternoon....especially after a awe-inspiring, heart-pounding nature hike or an epic surf session!


If it's cocktail hour, the ice-tea makes an excellent base for a tropical cocktail. Just add rum!


It's easy to make and I recommend making a double recipe. You can easily keep it in the refrigerator and make some tea ice-cubes in the freezer.



INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups water

  • 2 cups roughly chopped lemongrass stalks

  • 1/4 cup honey (optional)

  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice

  • 2 stalks of fresh mint leaves (or 1/8 cup leaves only)

  • Lime wheels for garnish (optional)





INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Bring the water to a boil over high heat in a medium saucepan.

  3. Add the lemongrass and boil rapidly for 5 minutes.

  4. Stir in honey or sugar until dissolved.

  5. Muddle mint leaves.

  6. Turn off the heat, and add mint leaves.

  7. Let sit for 5 minutes

  8. Strain the stalks and mint from the liquid.


  1. Chill in the refrigerator and pour over ice.
