Place 10 flowers of butter fly pea in a tea pot. Pour one cup hot water to it. Keep aside.
Let it steep for 5 mins. The color will turn deep purple in shade.
Optionally you can make ice cubes out of this and use it in the recipe for more deep color.
To make butterfly pea flower lemonade, place the ice cups in the serving glass until ¾th of it.
Add simple syrup, steeped blue water to it. Tip in the lemon juice.
The color will change from blue to a purple hue. Mix well and enjoy.
- Using the blue ice cube is optional, can make it with regular ice too.
- Instead of simple syrup, you can also use honey or agave for healthier option.
