Color Changing Lemonade Slushie (Galaxy Lemonade)

All the color and splendor of a galaxy in a simple lemonade slushie! Dried butterfly pea/blue pea flowers, lemons, club soda and sugar are all you need to make this magical Color Changing Galaxy Lemonade Slushie! A simple butterfly pea flower lemonade summer drink with a dash of magic that both kids and adults will love!


So having a concentrated lemon syrup in the fridge means that I only have to pour it over ice or mix it with soda or some booze, any time I want to. The lemon syrup used in this color changing lemonade is my homemade lemon concentrate. It’s miles better than store-bought too!

  • 1 ½ cups of sugar either white or brown sugar will work
  • grated lemon zest (from about 4 lemons)

INSTRUCTIONS
MAGIC ICE CUBES

  1. Steep the dried blue pea flowers in boiling water for about 20 - 30 minutes, until the water turns very deep blue in color (the darker the color, the better).
  2. Strain the tea, and pour it into ice cube trays. Freeze until completely frozen (overnight).
  3. When needed, crush the ice in an ice crushing blender. (You can use some extra water to help with blending the ice, but remember not to crush all of the ice completely, and have some small chunks intact).
  4. Keep in the freezer until needed.

LEMON SYRUP

  1. Mix the lemon juice, lemon zest and sugar in a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Stir to dissolve. Bring the syrup to a simmer, and simmer for about 10 minutes until slightly thickened.
  2. Strain the syrup and let it cool down and store in a bottle in the fridge. This lemon syrup can be diluted at a 1:3 ratio to make regular lemonade.


COLOR CHANGING LEMONADE SLUSHIE (GALAXY LEMONADE SLUSHIE)

  1. In a blender (that's capable of crushing ice), add the regular ice, lemon syrup and alcohol (if using). Blend until you have an icy mix. Add more ice if needed to keep the icy consistency. 
  2. Keep this lemon slushie mix in the freezer until needed, but remember to stir it every few hours to keep it from re-freezing. 
  3. Divide the lemon slushie between 4 glasses. Top with some magic ice. Add a splash of club soda or vodka. 
  4. Add some extra crushed magic ice on top and serve with stirring sticks and straws.

COLOR CHANGING LEMONADE (GALAXY LEMONADE)

  1. Fill ⅓ of a tall glass (about 11 oz) with regular crushed ice. Fill another ⅓ with the crushed magic ice. (Optional - add a dash of shimmery luster petal dust).
  2. Pour about ¼ - ⅓ cup of the lemon syrup into the glass and top it with club soda (or lemon lime soda).
  3. Add some extra crushed magic ice on top, and serve with stirring sticks and straws.
