What’s your favorite summer drink? For me, it’s lemonade! Hands down…

The other day, I made delicious blueberry syrup with the abundance of fresh blueberries I had on hand. Yeah, sure I could’ve made my favorite blueberry cheesecake muffins, but I didn’t feel like turning on the oven. Another time, another day.

Blueberry syrup wasn’t a bad idea though, because I added it to my lemonade along with some club soda. Oh my, was it good! A little tart, perfectly sweet and slightly sparkling! Perfection!!

Though I had made a huge batch, it didn’t even last full 2 days. Keep in mind only 3 people got to try it the first time around! Now, it’s one of our favorite summer drinks!

Of course, everyone’s taste buds are different, some like their lemonade on sweeter side, some like tarter. Whatever floats your boat, adjust it to your specific liking.

Sparkling, refreshing, bursting with flavor, this blueberry lemonade will be your favorite thirst-quencher all summer long!

Hope you’re having a fantastic summer. Cheers!

Sparkling Blueberry Lemonade

Sparkling, refreshing, bursting with flavor, this blueberry lemonade will be your favorite thirst-quencher all summer!


Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients:


  • 1 cup blueberries

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 cup (200gr) sugar

  • 1 cup (240ml) fresh lemon juice

  • 3 cups (720ml) club soda


Directions:


  1. To make blueberry syrup, in a small saucepan, combine blueberries, honey and ¼ cup of water and bring it to boil over medium high heat.

  2. Reduce the heat to medium and mash the berries. Continue to simmer for 5 minutes.

  3. Run the mixture through fine sieve to remove pulp. Set aside to let cool. This yields about 2/3 cup of blueberry syrup.

  4. To make simple syrup, in a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in sugar. This yields about 1 ½ cups of simple syrup.

  5. To make the lemonade, in a large pitcher, combine lemon juice, blueberry syrup and simple syrup.

  6. Right before serving, add club soda. Serve over ice.

  1. I’m just coming around to trying things with blueberries in them after my dad tricked me about 20 years ago telling me they were “blue chocolate chip” muffins. Needless to say, they were blueberries. This looks great though, super refreshing and so so pretty!

  2. Must try this! Shinee, looks so refreshing and a fun drink for summer parties!
