Today marks the finish of the Blog Off week for Gourmet Garden. I've had great fun incorporating their pastes into my cooking and checking out all the other terrific blogs that have been taking part.
After all that cooking and blogging I think we deserve a drink!
D designed this cocktail for my Mum's surprise 60th a few years back - it certainly got the party going then and it continues to be a hit at the farm.
50ml Sugar syrup
Squeeze Gourmet Garden Lemongrass paste.
Combine spirits, lemongrass paste, sugar syrup and ice in a cocktail shaker.
Shake it like a polaroid picture (or like a young Tom Cruise if you've got the moves and/or don't mind mopping the floors!).
Pour the contents into two martini glasses.
Top off with tonic and share one with your Mum!
