.. blue ice, with tonic

.. oh wow, colour changes are just magical. blue from the blue pea flower on our fence downstairs, and tonic water. Butterfly pea flower tea, commonly known as blue tea, is a caffeine-free herbal tea, or tisane, beverage made from a decoction or infusion of the flower petals or even whole flower of the Clitoria ternatea plant. Clitoria ternatea is also known as butterfly pea, blue pea, Aprajita, Cordofan pea, Blue Tea Flowers or Asian pigeonwings.

How? well ...

First, add some crushed regular ice to a glass (less than what you see in the photo below!). Top it with a little crushed ice.

Next, it’s time for the magic to happen! Pour the chilled lemon syrup over the ice and watch the blue ice turn to purple and pink! This step is best done before your guests (or anyone else you’d like to impress!) of course.

Next, add some soda, or water to dilute the lemon syrup a little.

Finally, top it with a little extra blue crushed ice, and stir the drink for a gorgeous galaxy effect.
