Color Changing Lemon Cocktails

These Color Changing Lemon Cocktails are tart yet sweet with magical color changing capabilities. Lemonade, vodka, simple syrup, and a little bit of butterfly pea powder come together for one fun and beautifully colored drink. Adding the cocktails to an Erlenmeyer flask makes them feel even more like a science experiment!

The combination of the acidity from the lemonade and the butterfly pea powder gives you that pretty color transformation to a dark, deep purple. Butterfly pea powder doesn't really taste like much so you still enjoy that lemon taste from the lemonade.

A FEW NOTES BEFORE WE GET STARTED

Dry Ice

Let's get started! Add ice to a cocktail shaker followed by lemonade and simple syrup. Shake well and strain into a food safe Erlenmeyer flask or glass.

Combine vodka and butterfly pea powder in a small bowl and whisk together until combined. Carefully pour butterfly pea powder syrup into the glass and watch as the color changes, using a spoon or straw to stir it together.

Use tongs to carefully drop a small piece of dry ice into the drink. Let dry ice dissolve for five minutes before drinking. Enjoy!
