This summer is extremely hot hot hot....I'm sharing you this thirst quenching one of a kind beverage...this may sound odd...but try it..once you sip you can't resist the chill.

1 stalk "Tanglad" or lemon grass, trimmed

Steps:
Dissolve sugar in 1/4 cup boiling water to make a simple syrup. Set aside.
Steep lemon grass and tea in hot water for about 3-5 minutes. Let cool. Pour into blender.
Add orange juice, simple syrup and ice. Blend until smooth.
Pour into tall glass. Serve with lemon grass stalk and lemon slices.
