Galaxy Lemonade Recipe

This galaxy lemonade tastes just as good as it looks. Unlike many colourful drinks that add artificial food colouring, this all-natural recipe uses butterfly pea flowers to achieve a beautiful blue-purple gradient. 
While it may look as if a lot of work is required to recreate this drink, it is actually fairly simple to do so. All you need to do is follow 8 simple steps to pull this off.



  • 10g of butterfly pea flowers
  • 600ml of water
  • 4 lemons
  • 30g of sugar 
  • 1 bottle of lemon sparkling water 
  • Ice


  1. Heat 600ml of water and 10g of butterfly pea flowers over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Remove from heat once boiled and set the blue liquid aside to cool. 
  1. After the liquid has cooled down, pour it into an ice tray and place it into the freezer. 
  1. Cut 4 lemons into halves and squeeze out the juice. 
  1. Pass the juice through a strainer to remove any pulp and mix in 30g of sugar. Chill it in the refrigerator.
  1. Pour the chilled lemon juice into a glass.
  1. Crush a small amount of ice in a blender and put it into the glass.
  1. Remove the butterfly pea ice cubes from the fridge and blend it as well. Add it on top of the normal shaved ice. 
  1. Lastly, pour lemon sparkling water into the glass till it’s almost full. You’ll notice a gradient effect taking shape.
