Lemongrass Mojito

Lemongrass Mojito {Beard and Bonnet} #glutenfree #vegan

To say I have been obsessed with lemongrass at our house lately is an understatement  Over the next few weeks I will be sharing a few recipes spotlighting this ingredient. Since it is Friday though, I thought I would share a cocktail that we have been enjoying around the past few weeks. I hope that you all have a safe and happy weekend!
