Blueberry Lemonade

Ingredients
  

*Blueberry Syrup*

  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

*Lemonade*

  • 10 large lemons 2 cups of juice
  • 6 cups water

*Simple Syrup*

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water

Instructions
 

  • In a medium-size saucepan on medium-low heat, stir blueberries and sugar together and allow the berries to cook down and start releasing their juices, about 5 minutes. Stir frequently. Once blueberries have released lots of liquid, mash them down and cook for another 5 minutes. Mash one last time and then strain blueberry syrup into a large measuring cup and set aside to cool down completely.
  • Squeeze all of your lemons into a large measuring cup or bowl. You should wind up with about 2 cups of lemon juice. Straining your lemon juice is optional but I like to get all of the pulp out. Pour lemon juice and water into a large pitcher along with blueberry syrup and stir.
  • In a small saucepan, whisk sugar and water together until all sugar is dissolved. Gradually add the simple syrup to your blueberry lemonade until it is sweetened to your liking. I use abut 1/2-3/4 cup to sweeten mine. Serve over ice with additional blueberries for garnish.
