Made with ingredients that make you think of tropical vacations, this Ginger and Lemongrass Coconut Cooler will give you that one last taste of summer.
Ginger and Lemongrass Coconut Cooler
This is probably going to be the last summer recipe of the season, before we all slowly transition to fall. I don’t know about you, but I really don’t want summer to end. Let’s all have one last drink shall we?
The base of this drink is made by simmering a can of coconut milk with heaps of ginger and lemongrass over a low low heat. Then you let it cool overnight to fully infuse the coconut milk.
For a little natural sweetness I added some fresh coconut water. In a large pitcher mix together the coconut milk infusion with the coconut water and coconut rum. Stir and serve over ice with a slice of lime.
Garnish with a few stalks of lemongrass and get ready to savor the tropics.
