Butterfly Tea & T

By now you are already familiar with the magical attributes of the Butterfly Pea Flower.  While generally tasteless, the flowers are dried and made into tea.  When brewed, turn into a dark blue hue - turns out letting it steep in room temperature gin does the same thing.  The cool part about it is that anything acidic turns the liquid’s hue from a deep blue into a bright pink-ish purple.  I had a lot of fun playing around with this one - feel free to get creative and try it for yourself!



  • 1½ oz Butterfly Pea Tea-infused Gin

  • ½ oz St. George Spirits Spiced Pear Liqueur

  • 5 Drops Crude Bitters Lavender Bitters

  • 1 oz Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. Tonic Water

  • ½ oz Fresh Lime Juice

  • Dehydrated Lime Wheel


Combine infused gin and spiced pear liqueur in a shaking tin with ice.  Shake for 5-10 seconds.  Double strain and pour into a collins glass over a solid piece of ice.  Stir while pouring the mixture of tonic water and lime juice.  Garnish with a dehydrated lime wheel (if desired).
