About the drink

All butterflies are pretty, but Lao butterflies are incredibly beautiful! They are huge, with vivid colors and peculiar shapes. You don’t need to go far away in the jungle to spot them, as long as there’s a few trees, some flowers or a small garden you can enjoy plenty of these delicate insects.

Our personal favourite ispired this elegant and creamy cocktail, which pays homage also to Lao’s national color! Blue is to be found in every single home textile, garnment, ceramic and even iced tea in this country!

While butterflies only live for a few days, you can enjoy this drink all the time as a sophisticated afternoon drink or as an aperitif.

Btw, you have not gone color blind: the color in the pic is indeed purple. If you’re curious to know why just drop us an email!
