5 Cocktails With Butterfly Pea Flowers

About a month ago I decided to buy a pack of butterfly pea flowers. I’ve always liked drinking the tea when I would visit Thailand, and knew about the color changing properties. However I had never used them for anything other than tea. I decided 

The Pelagic Cocktail

The Pelagic Cocktail

Very rarely do I toot my own horn as much as I’m about to do with this cocktail. I truly believe it to be one of the best things I’ve ever made, and everyone I’ve made it for (including a well respected mixologist) agrees. It
