Tropical Champagne Cocktail



cup sugar
cup water
4-inch piece of lemongrass, cut into small circles
2-inch piece of ginger, peeled and cut into thin rounds


Combine everything in a saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes or longer, until it tastes spicy enough for you. Let cool, strain, pour some into a glass (makes enough for about four drinks), add Champagne. Give it a little stir, if needed.

Raise a glass to love.
