Ingredient Tips and Substitutes

Lavender Tea

Lavender tea is created by steeping lavender flowers in hot water.
You have the option of using either previously dried lavender or fresh lavender flowers.

Just make sure you use food-grade lavender flowers to ensure they are safe for consumption.

Butterfly Pea Flower Tea

Using butterfly pea tea is optional, but it’s what gives the drink its whimsical violet color.

Butterfly pea flowers create a tea with an intense blue hue that transforms into a beautiful purple when you add some lemon.

You only need a small amount of butterfly pea tea for this delightful lemonade.

I personally used dried flowers, but you can also use it in powder form if that’s what you have.

Water

Regular tap water works well, but boil it first to steep the flowers.

Since the water is hot, any sweetener will easily dissolve in it.

The trick lies in only using a small amount of water to create a concentrated lavender tea.
This reduces the waiting time for it to cool down.
Actually, you didn’t really need to wait for it to cool down because adding some ice will quickly cool down it.

Sugar

Feel free to use your preferred type of sweetener.
Usually I use low-carb sugar alternatives like granulated xylitol or erythritol for this lemonade.

Lemon juice

You may use either fresh squeezed lemon juice or store-bought bottled lemon juice.

Tricks

  • Make your lavender tea concentrated by using a small amount of water. This way, it will cool down quickly.
  • If you don’t have butterfly pea flowers it’s okay. The taste will be almost the same; the drink will just have a lemonade-like color instead of a purple one.
