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.
- 1 cup of water
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 4 cups of blueberries, pureed and strained
- 1 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 3 cups of water
- blueberries for garnish
- To make the simple syrup, in a small saucepan heat the sugar and 1 cup of water, stirring just until the sugar has dissolved. Chill.
- In a large glass pitcher, combine the simple syrup, pureed blueberries, lemon juice and 3 cups of water with ice. Taste and adjust sweetness if needed. Add a handful of blueberries to the pitcher for garnish.
