Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 5 min.
Yield: 6-8 glasses
2 cups of fresh blueberries (or use frozen blueberries to keep it extra cold.)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 cups cold water, divided
Lemon slices and blueberries to garnish, if desired
Place the blueberries, sugar and 1 cup of water in a blender. Blend on medium-high speed for about 1 minute, until the blueberries are completely pureed. Strain the blueberry puree through a fine mesh strainer (or skip this step if you don't mind small pieces of blueberry in your lemonade).
Combine the blueberry puree with lemon juice and the remaining 3 cups of water. Add more water, if desired. Stir well, and chill. Serve over ice. Substitute Club Soda for a fizzy version.
