Magic Butterfly Pea Lemonade
This drink is one-part science, one-part pure magic, and a whole lot of fun. Using a flower that comes from Southeast Asia called butterfly pea, it starts out a beautiful sapphire blue after brewing into a tea. When the acidity of the lemonade is added, it begins turning purple and pink. You can find these dried flower buds and brew your own tea or purchase powdered mixes that have the blue base ready to go. Whip up some pure magic at your next party.
