Organic Honey Ginger-Lemongrass Martini, by Jenifer

Begin by making a ginger-lemongrass infused honey:
2 tlbs minced lemongrass
1 tlb peeled, minced fresh ginger
3 tlbs clover honey
1 c water
~Remove outer leaves from leomngrass- cut off top and bottom; mince soft core
~Combine lemongrass, ginger, honey & water in saucepan and bring to slow boil; reduce heat & cook until it becomes a light syrup
~Remove from heat, strain and cool to room temp before using

To make Martini:
1 tsp Ginger lemongrass infused honey
2 oz organic vodka
Crushed Ice
Lemongrass blade and candied ginger for garnish
~Combine infused honey with vodka in cocktail shaker; shake vigorously for about 10 seconds
~Add crushed ice; shake again for another 30 seconds- strain and serve (I like a chlled martini glass) with garnish
