Fresh mint (2 sprigs)
1 1/2 ounces of Kentucky bourbon
3/4 ounces of Lemongrass-Ginger Simple Syrup
Club Soda
Lime

Add the mint and ice to a cocktail shaker and muddle. Add bourbon and simple syrup and shake vigorously. Mixture goes into a Collins glass. Add club soda and lime to finish.

To make Lemongrass-Ginger Simple Syrup

6 stalks of lemongrass
2 cups of sugar
Slice of ginger

Cut lemongrass so you have the bases only. Combine lemongrass, sugar, 2 cups of water and ginger into a saucepan. Simmer on heat until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat afterward and let syrup sit for 30-40 minutes then strain.
