Tangy and refreshing blueberry and mint lemonade, made with fresh ingredients for the perfect summer drink.
I know I’ve said this before, but if you have the option of going out to a local u-pick farm, do it! It really is the perfect summer activity. We have so much fun every time we go. Plus, nothing beats locally grown food that you pick yourself, not even the farmer’s market.
Last week we drove out to a tiny, organic u-pick blueberry farm that was only five minutes from our house. Since the farm was small there weren’t many people there which meant the girls could be a bit more “wild” than usually allowed in public. They had so much fun picking (and eating) berries and frolicking through the rows, and I got a workout ducking through the bushes after them.
I’m not much of a lemonade drinker, but our outing to the berry farm left me with a craving for it. Since I don’t usually like regular lemonade, i decided to try out a blueberry lemonade instead. I couldn’t get enough of this and neither could the girls.
How To Make Blueberry and Mint Lemonade
1 cup water (for syrup)
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups lemon juice (about 8 lemons)
2 cups blueberries
5-6 cups cold water
A handful of mint leaves
- Combine 1 cup of water and sugar in a medium-sized saucepan. Heat on medium until sugar is completely dissolved. Add in blueberries, bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until blueberries are broken down about 5 minutes. Drain syrup through a fine-mesh strainer. Set aside to cool.
- Add lemon juice and water a pitcher. Pour in blueberry syrup and add in mint leaves. Stir and refrigerate 30 minutes. Enjoy.
Fun tip: Serve with vodka for a more adult drink.
