Walking in the sun of the bitter summer, I will suddenly miss the various kinds of juices soaked in ice in the streets of Thailand. At this moment, if there is such a small stall, I will definitely rush. Watermelon juice, mango juice, passion fruit juice, lemon juice, lemongrass, syrup, each bottle! Summer is hot, especially craving for acid. I’m holding the mood of “I don’t have a holiday, I’m going to have a drink at home on the weekend, pretending to be in Thailand,” I went to the savory season in the vegetable market, bought some spices that are very common in Thai food, and tried to use some Thai style. The spices and lemons are combined to make a drink, and after a bite, they are shocked. A cup of summer is none other than it!
Rinse the lemon with water and sprinkle with salt on the surface to clean the skin. Wash it again;
Wipe the lemon peel with a grater, pay attention to only the green part, and the white peel tastes bitter;
After cutting the lemon, all the juice is squeezed out;
Boil 200 grams of water in a small pot, put in tea leaves, cook for one minute, turn off the heat, cover with a lid to let the tea taste continue to precipitate;
Lemongrass and lemon leaves are cut into small pieces and then mixed with water to form a meringue. Pour into a small pot, add lemon zest, boil and simmer for 5 minutes to allow the juice and aroma of the spices to separate into the water, then filter out the spice juice. ;
Filter out black tea;
Put lemon juice, spice water, black tea and rock sugar in a small pot and cook on low heat. You need to stir at any time to avoid the paste pot. After the thick syrup is placed, put the bottle in a cool syrup. The cooking process takes about 20 minutes.
The prepared syrup can be stored in the refrigerator for at least one month. When you drink, use a small spoonful of scoop, add water or soda and mix well. Remember to add ice!
Very long Tips: 1. When cooking black tea and cooking spices, pay attention to the amount of water. The mixer can be used up. Finally, concentrate it into syrup. If there is too much water, cook for a long time. 2. Brush the lemon peel. Don't rub your fingers safely; 3. It's best to use lime. Southeast Asia basically uses lime lemon. Its fragrance is more suitable for the spices used in the recipe. 4. When you do, you will doubt: so many tea leaves. ? So many spices? Such a polysaccharide? Believe me, don't doubt, these boiled out every day for you to drink for more than a month, and it won't be too sweet, too tea, too spiced. 5. If you want to drink and are afraid of fat? Use sugar substitute! Stevia xylitol can be used, the proportion of their own try, with sugar substitute, it will not concentrate very thick, and easy to break, please boil directly into ice after cooking; 6, black tea try to use a little better, tea Strong fragrance; 7, if there is no mixer, the spices are cut a little, cook alone for 20 minutes and then filter out the spice water; 8, each time the recipe will be asked: no ** can not? The three spices in this recipe were chosen after careful consideration. The scent is very layered and not too heavy. The smell of a certain spice is not particularly prominent, and it is a feeling of balance and gloom. If you don't add spices, then it's a simple lemon black tea. It's also good, but there is no layering, and the whole taste will be thinner. The aroma of lemon peel is very subtle, but this step is actually very tired. If there is no grater or too lazy, it can be omitted. There is a difference, but it will not be particularly large. If there is no lemon without tea, don't do it. I sincerely recommend you: First, please follow my prescription and feel the feeling brought by each different ingredients, and then adjust according to your own preferences. Taobao is so convenient, it is easy to buy ingredients. 9. Where to buy materials: If you are in Kunming, the new food market can be purchased at one stop. If you buy Taobao, please search for “citronella” because most of the lemon-selling shops do not sell lemongrass and lemon leaves. Most of the shops selling lemongrass sell lemon and lemon leaves, which can be purchased at one stop. This kind of shop usually sells a lot of Thai ingredients. If you are interested, you can buy some Tom Yum Kung soup and coconut milk by the way, so you can use the remaining lemongrass and lemon leaves to cook a pot of great Tom Yum Kung! I am flagged here, and the Tom Yum Power tutorial is within a month! 10. What should I do with the remaining lemongrass and lemon leaves? The white stem of lemongrass is sweeter, so the syrup is selected in this section, but the green leaves are also very strong in aroma. You can cut into small sections and drink tea. I drink this in the office all the year round, refreshing and refreshing. The frozen section is frozen, and the lemon leaves are also frozen. When making the Tom Yum Kung soup and the green curry, in addition to the semi-finished sauce, if you add a little spice, the flavor will be stronger and the ritual feeling will be more sufficient, but you can use a pot to cook a little. I myself bought some to use it slowly.
