CoAqua, Lemongrass & Rum cooler


November 24, 2016

The folks over at homestyle magazine have created this fantastic summer-time drink along with Plantation rum and of course CoAqua coconut water.

Here's how you do it.

INGREDIENTS

250ml CoAqua - (can or bottle)
250ml ginger beer
60ml Plantation 3 star white rum
60ml lemongrass simple syrup
Ice
Juice of two limes
Lime slice to garnish

Making the simple syrup

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 stems lemongrass (sliced in half)

To make the lemongrass syrup, place the water and sugar in a saucepan, stir to dissolve the sugar and put on a low heat to simmer until liquid is completely clear. Remove from the heat and add the lemongrass stems and allow to cool. Transfer to a glass jar and refrigerate overnight and let the lemongrass steep into the syrup. Remove the stems.

Making the cooler

Fill a large jug with ice, add CoAqua, ginger beer, Plantation rum, simple syrup & lime juice. Garnish with lemongrass and lime slices. Serve in tall glasses.
