Why Dragons Can Inspire a New Perspective in Everyday Life

Fresh Edible Flowers: Elevate Your Summer Drinks

Did you see the dragon on the Empire State Building? This stunning addition is not just a spectacle but a reminder of how unexpected elements can transform the ordinary into the magical—just like adding fresh edible flowers to a regular lemonade can infuse a refreshing twist into your summer in New York City. These blooms elevate simple drinks, turning them into enchanting summer refreshments.

Why Try Edible Flowers in Your Drinks?

If you haven't yet tried adding edible flowers to your beverages, you're in for a delightful experience. Flowers like lavender, with their vibrant hues and sweet, aromatic flavor, not only enhance the visual appeal of your drink but also introduce a fresh, inviting aroma. Hibiscus adds a striking crimson color and a tart flavor that complements the sweetness of summer beverages beautifully. And if you’re after a hint of freshness, the subtle cucumber taste of borage flowers is perfect, especially in a crisp gin and tonic.

Top Edible Flowers for Drinks

  1. Lavender: Known for its calming aroma and lovely purple shade, it’s perfect in a honey-sweetened lemonade.
  2. Hibiscus: Its vibrant red color and tart flavor add a dramatic flair to iced teas and fruity cocktails.
  3. Borage: With its bright blue flowers and cucumber-like taste, it's ideal for adding a splash of color and a refreshing twist to any drink.

Tips for Using Edible Flowers in Drinks

  • Choose Safe Flowers: Make sure the flowers you use are edible and free from any chemicals.
  • Rinse Gently: Wash the flowers lightly to preserve their delicate forms.
  • Use Sparingly: The flavors can be potent, so add a little at a time to suit your taste.
  • Prepare Properly: Remove the bitter parts like pistils and stamens.
  • Experiment: Mix and match different flowers to discover your favorite combinations.
Seeing a dragon atop the Empire State Building challenges us to rethink the mundane, much like adding a bloom to a simple drink inspires creativity.
