Lemongrass syrup:

Simmer all ingredients over a gentle heat for about 30 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Mango vermouth:

Start this recipe the night before.

Peel the mango skin with a knife, leaving as much flesh on the stone as possible. Trim the ends of the mango skin to flatten. Store skins and end in an airtight container.

Next, cut the mango flesh - place horizontally on a chopping board and starting in the middle run the knife down the side of the stone, removing as much flesh as possible.

Rotate 90 degrees and do the same for the sides. Discard the stone in your compost ad cut the mango flesh into 2cm slices and add to the container with the skins.

Pour in the Vermouth, seal and leave to sit overnight in the fridge. The next morning, strain the Vermouth and transfer to a sterilised glass bottle, it should last about 3 months in the fridge.

54 Mangoes Cocktail:

Combine all ingredients in a highball glass and stir to combine. Top with ice, garnish with mango and funk the night away.
