Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup white sugar (superfine is best)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 and 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (~4-5 whole large lemons)
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 3 cups sparkling water or club soda (my favorite is sparkling lemon lime water)

Instructions

  • Combine the sugar, water, blueberries, and lemon zest in a saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat and then simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the sugar is melted and blueberries are starting to burst.
  • Remove from the heat and pass through a fine sieve. Let this blueberry syrup completely cool.
  • Meanwhile, juice the lemons to get 1 cup lemon juice.
  • In a large pitcher, add the blueberry syrup, lemon juice, and ice. Stir together.
  • Stir in the sparkling water or club soda RIGHT before enjoying (don't add sparkling water/club soda to anything you plan on having leftover)
  • Enjoy immediately.

Notes

If you don't plan on drinking this all in 1 day, keep the juice (blueberry syrup + lemon juice) separate from the sparking water. Add the two together as you want a cup of lemonade.
