This playful concoction is designed to amuse and surprise, perfect for an April Fool's toast. At first glance, this cocktail boasts a mesmerizing deep purple hue. However, as it sits, it magically transitions to a clear liquid, confounding the drinker’s expectations. **Glass:** Chilled coupe glass **Ingredients:** - 50ml Gin infused with butterfly pea flowers - 30ml Lemon juice, freshly squeezed - 20ml Simple syrup - 10ml Elderflower liqueur - Soda water - Ice cubes - A sprig of lavender or an edible flower for garnish **Directions:** 1. Begin by infusing your favorite gin with butterfly pea flowers. This should be done at least 24 hours in advance. For the infusion, add a handful of dried butterfly pea flowers to a bottle of gin, letting it sit, shaking occasionally until you achieve a vibrant blue color. 2. In a shaker, combine the infused gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and elderflower liqueur with ice. Shake until well-chilled. 3. Strain the mixture into your chilled coupe glass. 4. Carefully top with a splash of soda water. Initially, the cocktail will appear to be a deep, inviting violet due to the acidity from the lemon juice interacting with the butterfly pea flower gin. 5. Garnish with a sprig of lavender or an edible flower for an extra touch of whimsy. **The Trick:** As your guest enjoys their drink, the acidity from the lemon juice slowly neutralizes, causing the vibrant violet to fade away, leaving behind a nearly clear cocktail. This visual trick, paired with the delightful flavors, makes The Vanishing Violet a memorable drink for any April Fool's Day celebration or whenever you want to add a dash of mystery to your evening.
