Lemongrass Simple Syrup:

1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

1 1/8 cups water 

3 lemongrass stalks, cleaned, trimmed, crushed and rough chopped 

1 Kaffir lime leaf 

1 teaspoon lemon juice 

Paletas:

2 1/4 cups watermelon juice

1 teaspoon lime juice 

Directions

Special equipment:
8 to 10 ice pop molds
  1. For the lemongrass simple syrup: Combine the sugar, water, lemongrass and kaffir lime leaf in a medium saucepan and place over medium heat.
  2. Once sugar has dissolved, add the lemon juice. Remove from the heat and let infuse for 10 minutes. Strain and chill over an ice bath; refrigerate until needed. Makes about 1 1/2 cups simple syrup.
