Netflix and Swill Cocktail

Thinking of ‘Netflix and Chill’ this weekend?  Well, make it Shine!  This amazing Moonshine cocktail will bring a little magic.  It is a gorgeous drink that changes colors.. and so delicious- you will ‘Swill” and Refill!

Check out our Blue Balls recipe that also uses this tea.

The magic ingredient is this Butterfly Pea Flower Tea.  You can purchase this through Amazon.  It is all natural and organic.  This tea is a gorgeous blue that changes to purple with the acidity of the citrus.  If you want to keep your simple syrup blue, you can add 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda.  Otherwise, enjoy the color-changing magic!

The Moonshine you can get at your liquor store is not the hair-raising alcohol you get from the still, but it still packs a punch at 100 proof.   Vodka is 80 proof by comparison.

Enjoy the ‘Thrill of the Swill’
