Citronelle Cocktail

Citronelle is the French word for lemongrass, one of the main components of the woodsy and bright Noga blend. For this drink I prepare a syrup to extract the flavors, leaving the solids behind. This cocktail can be made with either ginger beer for a bit more sweetness and bite, or seltzer for a drier and more floral drink, either way it complements the grassy rhum agricole nicely. The garnish is a lime wheel dipped in Aleppo pepper. Like it hot? Drop it in!
