Khajiit Blood Butterfly Pea Mead. We finally did it! We used butterfly pea in a mead. Adam, of “The Franklin” fame came up with this recipe for Khajiit Blood, a la Skyrim!
WHO IS KHAJIIT?
In the Elder Scrolls fantasy video-game series, the Khajiit are a fictional race of cat-like creatures whose stealth and agility make them accomplished thieves and warriors. Our pal Adam thought that the magical visual of fermenting with Butterlfy Pea would be worthy of such a name, and I can’t agree more!
