  • 52 oz jug of lemonade
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 2 tbsp butterfly pea tea flowers
  • 6 round strawberries (for garnish)
  • 1 tsp edible glitter (optional)


Step 1: Prepare the butterfly pea tea

  1. Boil about 4 cups of water in a kettle or saucepan. Add the butterfly pea tea flowers and brew for 5 minutes. Strain to remove the tea flowers and set aside to cool.

Step 2: Make the strawberry lemonade

  1. In a blender or food processor, blend the 2 cups strawberries until smooth. Strain the mixture to remove the seeds and any large pieces of pulp.
  2. Add the strawberry puree to the lemonade and mix until combined.
  3. If desired, add the edible glitter and again mix until combined.

Step 5: Assemble

  1. Fill 6 glasses with ice. Pour in the strawberry lemonade, leaving about an inch of space at the top of each glass.
  2. Top each glass with the blue butterfly pea tea. In order to create a clean separation of the liquids, pour the tea onto a spoon held over the glass, instead of directly into the glass itself.
  3. To create the Mickey-shaped garnish, slice each of the remaining strawberries into 1-cm wide round slices. Use a toothpick to attach two smaller slices onto a larger slice, creating the Mickey Mouse silhouette. Place one on the rim of each glass.
  4. To see the magical color change, stir each glass to combine the lemonade and the tea, creating a vibrant violet color!
