My father has a huge lemon tree growing in his backyard and I do my best to make the most of the tart and tangy citrus. I make a pitcher of lemonade each and every year as soon as the lemon tree starts to bare fruit. This year for a change I thought it might be nice to add an additional fruit flavor, like blueberries! Try a glass of my blueberry lemonade for a taste that is both sweet & tart!
-2 cups fresh lemon juice
-1/4 cup frozen blueberries
-3 cups fine granulated sugar
(2 1/2 cups for sweeter lemonade)
-6 cups water
-Slices of lemon
1: Squeeze enough fresh lemons to make 2 cups of lemon juice.
2: Boil together the blueberries, sugar, and 3 cups of water in a pot over the stove on medium high heat until the sugar is dissolved.
3: Combine the blueberry simple syrup, lemon juice, and remaining water in a large pitcher and let cool in the fridge over night.
4: Before serving, add ice and fresh slices of lemon.
PS: Remember to always....
