A Magic Blue Drink
While doing research on the internet, I found that in Thailand, people make a blue drink from the Butterfly Pea (Clitoria ternatea) flowers called nam dok anchan (น้ำดอกอัญชัญ). They will serve it with a jar of sweet pandan flavoured syrup and a citrus fruit.
I did an experiment and made my own blue drink by dissolving 3 crush flowers of the butterfly pea in a glass of water. Without the syrup, it is almost tasteless.
However, when I added a few drops of calamansi (citrus lime) juice and stirred, the solution turned purple right before my eyes, like magic!
