Featuring butterfly pea flower blossoms and Martin Miller gin, this concoction uses ingredients that may seem unusual, but many of them can be found at a local boutique liquor store and online. At the Catersource Swizzle cocktail competition in New Orleans, the Lazy Gourmet’s Shannon Boudreau used these trendy ingredients, plus others for her three custom cocktails, to take home the top prize. Try it at home.
