The only 'disease' that would bother me is sore throat. Since last night my throat wasn't feel good. This morning was bad. I was lucky as I managed to get some very fresh organic lemongrass from the hypermarket nearby my condo. I made this with 7 stalks of lemongrass only as I thought my boy may not like it because I added some lemon slices. To my surprise, he likes it and he told me mosquitoes will not bite him anymore! **because lemongrass repel mosquitoes** :)
I'm happy that he likes it as this drink is not only helps to relieve sore throat, it's actually a healthy refreshing drinks on a hot day.

I have been making this as a 'weekly refreshing drink'. I add about 5-6 small rock sugar while boiling the lemongrass. When the drink is completely cooled, I add some honey to taste.
