From other users
  • Really lovely flavor, licorice from the absinthe and mint are nice on the nose. Did without the butterfly pea powder, but that would have brought it to the level.

Curated this. Added butterfly

Curated this. Added butterfly pea powder that the citation calls for and makes the drink weirdly blue-purple (like a Petunia). Added year estimate. Thanks,  Zachary
