Sparkling Butterfly Pea Lemonade

Sparkling Butterfly Pea Lemonade

Butterfly pea flowers are beautiful flowers native to Southeast Asia, popular for their brilliant blue pigment and most commonly seen brewed as tea. However, their natural blue color can easily be infused into spirits and syrups and has become an exciting addition to the repertoire of both cocktail and zero-proof mixologists and home bartenders across the world.

Infusing the flowers produces a deep blue hue, but adding citrus juice changes the color to purple. Watching your drink change colors before your eyes is half the fun!

Sparkling Butterfly Pea Lemonade

1.5 oz butterfly pea flower syrup
1.5 oz lemon juice
3 oz Top Note Club No. 1

Stir all ingredients together in a glass with ice. (To achieve the best gradient effect, stir the syrup, soda and ice together first, then top with the lemon juice.)

Butterfly Pea Flower Syrup: In a small pot, combine 1.5 tbsp butterfly pea flowers, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to a low boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let the flowers steep another 20 minutes before straining into a clean glass container. Keep refrigerated.

Non Alcoholic Moscow Mule

Non Alcoholic Moscow Mule

Ok - This seems like a no-brainer, why not just serve up Ginger Beer? But to be clever about NA offerings, you need to usually add a twist. Plus the alcohol does dilute the mixer a tad bit, so let's see what we can create....

5 oz Top Note Ginger Beer

1 oz sparkling water, Lime or lemon Flavor, or plain soda water if preferred

1 lime, fresh squeezed

1/2 oz ginger syrup (Commercially purchased or hand made)

 

To make the drink:

Mix all ingredients together in a copper mug. Ice and add a lime slice on top. Enjoy!

 

To Make the Ginger Syrup

1/2 C Water, 1/2 C Granulated Sugar

2 in ginger grated w peel

Cooked water and sugar until dissolved over medium heat. Turn flame down and add ginger. Steep for 15 min. Turn off heat and let cool. Strain through cheesecloth bag. Great for tea and other cocktails! Store refrigerated for up to 1 month.

 

 

The Cool Collected One

The Cool Collected One

Sometimes a G&T sounds great, but you suddenly realized you have to stay level and cool & collected for your party of guests. Try this simple "hack" to get the Gin flavor you want but with a juice press you can make at home!

 

4 oz Top Note Classic Tonic Water

2 oz savory juice press (see below)

2 dashes bitters 

Juniper Berries, Lime Wheel, Cucumber Wheel garnish

Build drink as you would a G&T, but instead of Gin add Juice Press. Garnish as you wish with Cucumbers or Lime.

If going for fancy, in a large balloon goblet, add a lime wheel and cucumber wheels first into the glass, add 2 dashes bitters, and build drink on top. Add ice. This makes a "pink drink" but builds fantastic flavor as the drinks sits and ice melts. Enjoy!

Juice Press: Blend 2 cucumbers, 3 stalks celery, 1 fresh lemon juiced in a blender. Pour into a cheesecloth and strain pulp. Save in a ball jar for up two 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
