The kitchen has always been the heart of a home. It’s where we connect with one another, where we create memories, bonds – and sometimes even new traditions. It’s a place where we come together around food and drink to celebrate. Raising the Bar was founded on these same ideas. We believe that spending time with loved ones is one of the most important parts of life, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring people together through our recipes. There’s something so rewarding about creating your own unique and delicious drink, and it’s even better when you’re able to share that process with the people you love!
We love that anyone can enjoy our zero-proof recipes, no matter their lifestyle or age. While they were made with adults in mind, they can also be the perfect treat to share with kids. Especially now that school is out for the summer, it can be difficult to find ways to keep kids engaged throughout the day. We think a mocktail-making party is a perfect activity to bring the whole family together! After all, our recipes are already kid-approved! It’s a great way to teach kids about kitchen skills, and the memories you create together might end up being the highlight of the summer. Maybe best of all, you end up with a fun, refreshing drink!
Our upcoming August box is filled with drinks that are sure to wow kids and adults alike, including this recipe for an incredible, color-changing butterfly pea tea lemonade.
- 3 cups of warm water
- ½ cup of fresh or dried butterfly pea flowers
- ⅓ cup of granulated sugar
- ⅓ cup of lemon juice
- 3 cups of ice
- 3 cups of soda water
- Pieces of lemon and rosemary sprigs for garnishes (optional)
Steep butterfly pea tea in water for about 5 minutes. Add sugar to the tea, and stir to dissolve. Once the tea has cooled, fill your serving glass with ice, and pour the tea. Add in the lemon juice, and watch as the tea changes colors! Once you’ve gotten over the excitement, fill the rest of the glass with soda water, add your garnish, and enjoy!
