  1. Add sugar and water to saucepan and heat until all the sugar is dissolved. Pour the liquid in a glass jar for storage.

  3. Place the mashed stalks of lemongrass in the warm simple syrup and leave to infuse for 3-4 days. Refrigerate after the liquid has cooled.

  4. Remove the lemongrass stalks from the liquid and pour through a strainer.  This mixture can be stored in the refrigerator for several months.
