The Basics - Blueberry Lemonade




The Basics - Blueberry Lemonade
Nothing is as refreshing as a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade on a hot summer day! - Why not make that delicious summer drink even better with some of your
 Home Canned Blueberry Syrup?



7 cups water (preferably filtered water)
2/3 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1/2 cup sugar (or to taste but remember - the blueberry syrup has sugar also)
1/2 cup Blueberry Syrup

Before squeezing the juice from your lemons - I always make sure that they are at room temperature and just before cutting them in half - I press down with the palm of my hand and roll the lemon on the counter for just a few seconds (this will help you get the optimum juice from 1 lemon) (see picture below).


Now, in a large pitcher, stir all ingredients until the sugar is totally dissolved.  .

Chill or serve over ice and ENJOY!
If you have some frozen blueberries - add those instead of ice!
