In Southeast Asia, butterfly pea flowers are used to impart a bright blue colour to food (notably glutinous rice deserts) and beverages. The pleasant flavour is quite like fermented green tea. Remarkably, its colour changes to an intense purple when citrus is added. In addition to citrus and palm sugar, it combines well with lemongrass or pandan. Amaze guests by serving hot or iced butterfly pea tea (or butterfly pea infused cocktails!) and watch the transformation from cobalt blue to royal purple when a few drops of citrus are squeezed in.
