Homemade Blueberry Lemonade
1/2 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
1 cup blueberries + ½ cup for freezing
3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
Lemon slices for garnish (optional)
Start by freezing ½ cup of fresh blueberries to use as ‘ice cubes.’ It looks beautiful, and it won’t water down the lemonade.
To make the blueberry simple syrup, combine sugar and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Add in 1 cup of blueberries and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until blueberries are soft, about 3-4 minutes. Strain blueberry mixture through a fine sieve; let cool.
In a large pitcher, whisk together blueberry simple syrup, lemon juice and 5 cups water. Refrigerate for 1 hour until chilled.
