A summer classic with a twist

In the dog days of summer it's a good idea to serve non-alcoholic drinks in addition to cocktails. Lemonade has long been a crowd pleaser, and this one adds blueberries for a twist on the traditional. It looks great in large vats or pitchers, eliminating the need for those elaborate floral arrangements you meant to order.
