Blueberry Lemonade

Ingredients 

  • 4-5 cups cold water , divided
  • 2 cups blueberries , fresh or frozen (thawed)
  • 1 cup (about 6 lemons) freshly squeezed lemon juice , more to taste
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar , more to taste

For serving: frozen blueberries, lemon slices, mint leaves

Instructions

  1. In a blender, combine the blueberries and 1 cup of water. Blend for about 30 seconds, or until the bluberries are pureed.
  2. Strain the bluberry puree through a fine mesh strainer into a large pitcher. You may need to strain the mixture twice if it is thick.
  3. Add the remaining water, freshly squeezed lemon juice and sugar to the pitcher. Taste and add more sugar and water if desired. Place in the refrigerator to chill.
  4. Serve over ice and garnish with blueberries, lemon slices and mint leaves, if desired.
