Pineapple Espresso & Tonic

Pineapple Espresso & Tonic

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!

1.5 oz butterfly pea flower syrup

1.5 oz lemon juice

3 oz Top Note Club Soda No. 1

Garnish: fresh or dehydrated citrus

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.
