Lemongrass And Ginger Drink


It’s widely known that Lemongrass and Ginger Drink is an effective remedy for coughs, flu, nausea, indigestion, stomach cramping, etc. I am not sure if it really heals all that’s been claimed, however, I do know that having a couple of cups of the drink did soothe my stomach when I wasn’t feeling well recently. Whatever the case, I love the taste of this drink which is typically served hot; but, it can also be served as a refreshing iced drink on a hot sweltering day. Try making some and serve it hot during the current cold season, it will help to keep to your body warm! :)


Lemongrass And Ginger Drink

Ingredients


4 Stalks Fresh Lemongrass, trimmed and bruised (smashed)
1 inch Fresh Ginger, peeled and bruised (smashed)
1000 ml Water
3 Pandan (Screwpine) Leaves, washed and knotted
80 g Yellow Rock Sugar

Method

Combine the lemongrass, ginger, Pandan leaves, and water in a medium pot. Bring it to a boil, lower to heat to simmer. Cover with lid and simmer for about 45 minutes.

Add rock sugar and continue to simmer for another 15 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.

  1. I first taste lemongrass drink in Bali and I couldn't find the same taste anywhere else.
    The one I had, I think has been boiled for hours, until the lemongrass feels so mellow on the throat, like what the Chinese says "Yuun".

  2. Beautiful photos and lovely drink. Our weather can't decide if it is going to be hot or cold. I foresee some sniffles in my future, this will be a great remedy.
    Do you know where I can get Yellow Rock Sugar online?

  3. I make lemongrass tea all the time! I usually just put in a couple stalks of lemongrass, boil and steep for 5-10 mins and then add a spoonful of honey. It always makes me feel better :)

  5. Nice to hear about a new natural remedy especially with the cold weather upon us. I grew up with hot camomile and anise tea, as the cure for stomach aches.

  6. I love the combination of lemongrass and ginger! I actually made a coconut curry last night that used lemongrass and ginger for the seasoning. So yummy.

  7. I had this first in a Thai Restaurant here and it was so good!! It didn't have any ginger but i think there were pandan in it. Smells so fragrant and refreshing!
