What is Sauvignon Blanc?
Sauvignon Blanc is a popular white wine known for its bright acidity and vibrant flavors. It hails from various wine regions around the world, such as New Zealand, France (notably in the Loire Valley and Bordeaux), and California. This varietal typically offers crisp notes of citrus, green apple, grass, and herbs, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a refreshing and zesty wine. In the Magic Potion Wine Spritz, Sauvignon Blanc provides the base for our enchanting cocktail.
Sunny With a Chance of Flowers
Sunny With a Chance of Flowers is a great choice for this wine based cocktail. Sunny is all about mindful sipping – zero sugar, fewer calories, and less alcohol, yet bursting with flavor! It’s sustainably crafted, vegan, and gluten-free. This Sauvignon Blanc has notes of guava, crushed pineapple and ruby grapefruit.
What is Butterfly Pea Flower?
The Butterfly Pea Flower, scientifically known as Clitoria ternatea, is a tropical plant native to Southeast Asia. Its unique, vibrant blue-purple petals have garnered attention not only for their striking appearance but also for their natural coloring properties. When steeped in hot water, these petals release a brilliant blue hue, which can transform into various shades when the pH of the liquid changes, making it a captivating ingredient for mixology. In our spritz, Butterfly Pea Flower Syrup adds an eye-catching twist and a hint of floral sweetness.
How to Make Butterfly Pea Flower Syrup:
Creating your own Butterfly Pea Flower Syrup is surprisingly easy, and it allows you to infuse its mesmerizing color into your cocktails. Here’s a step-by-step guide:
½ cup dried Butterfly Pea Flowers
1 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
Add water, sugar and butterfly pea flowers to a saucepan and bring to medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves then simmer for 5-10 minutes. The longer the flowers steep the deeper the color will be. Allow to cool then strain out the flowers. You can store this syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
