Number of servings
1⁄8 cup (20g) caster sugar
1⁄8 tsp sea salt
1⁄3 pandan leaf knotted
1⁄8 cup (40ml) water
1⁄8 cup blue butterfly pea flowers, dried or 4 cups of fresh flowers
Serving suggestion for two drinks
6 ice cubes
1⁄8 lemon sliced
1⁄8 lime sliced
20ml sparkling water
1⁄8 stalk of lemongrass
Make a simple syrup by boiling sugar, salt, pandan and water until sticky and reduced to half its original volume.
Once it has cooled but still warm to the touch, roughly 50°C, add the blue butterfly pea flowers to infuse and let steep for 30 minutes.
Strain the syrup into a bottle and store refrigerated for up to 6 months.
To serve, add 2 tsp syrup to a glass with ice cubes, lemon and lime slices and top with sparkling water, seltzer or soda water. Finish with a lemongrass swizzle stick. (Add alcohol if desired.)
