Butterfly Flower Pea Tea
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 2 tablespoons dried butterfly pea flowers
Lemonade per serving
  • 2-3 tablespoons elderflower syrup
  • Juice of ½ lemon/lime
  • ½ cup crushed ice
  • ¼ - ⅓ cup butterfly pea flower tea
  • ½ cup crushed ice
  • ½ cup club soda
  • Lemon/lime wedges for garnish
  1. In a small pot, heat up water until it comes to a simmer. Remove the pot from heat and add the butterfly pea flowers and let it steep for several minutes. The longer the flowers steep, the darker the color. This will make a few servings of drinks.
  2. In a tall glass, add elderflower syrup to the bottom of the glass. Then add lemon juice.
  3. Add about ½- 3/4 cup ice to the glass so that the ice is higher than the lemon juice. Pour the butterfly pea flower tea so that it hits the ice, creating a layered effect.
  4. Add more ice to the glass so that it’s higher than the butterfly pea flower tea. Then top the glass with club soda. Add more crushed ice.
  5. Garnish the sparkling butterfly pea flower tea lemonade with lemon wedges if desired. Serve cold and stir before drinking.
**The tea will make for more servings but the lemonade makes one serving. But it can easily be doubled or tripled.
