If your idea of a perfect pint is full of blueberries and not beer, then this summertime sipper is for you! Easy to make and easier to drink, Blueberry Lemonade is ripe for mocktails, cocktails, popsicles or just kicking back and relaxing. No simple syrup needed – blend, strain and mix. Got more berries? Garnish for a pretty treat.
Combine the blueberries, sugar, and 2 cups of water in a blender. Blend until very smooth, 30-45 seconds.
Nest a strainer over a pitcher or a 2-cup measuring cup. Strain the solids.
Transfer the strained puree to a pitcher if needed. Add the lemon juice and the remaining 4 cups of water. Mix until well combined, then serve over ice. Garnish with blueberries and lemon wheels if desired.
Variation: add ½ c mint leaves to the blueberries before pureeing.
