Honey Butterfly Tea Soda
This stunning refresher is pure magic. The butterfly pea tea has a brilliant blue color, when coming into contact with the tart lemon – it creates a whimsical color experience.  Orange Blossom Honey adds the perfect touch of floral sweetness.

Makes 1 drink

2 ounces Honey Citrus Elixir (recipe follows)
2 ounces soda water, chilled
1 1/2 ounces brewed Butterfly Pea Tea*, chilled
Garnish: lemon wheel

Measure the Honey Citrus Elixir and soda water into a tall glass. Fill with ice, and then top with tea. Garnish with lemon wheel.
