The 11-year-old has been asking to make lemonade and somehow blueberries got thrown into the mix, so I googled recipes and found this one. It’s a fair amount of work for a beverage, but kind of worth it when you can get the kids involved. We quartered the original recipe, so this makes just one pitcher, but I might make more next time. It’s pretty tasty…and makes a darn good sangria if you just add some red wine! I’m thinking vodka would be pretty great adult additive as well…
1 cup fresh organic blueberries
1 1/2 plus 1/8 cup organic sugar
7 organic lemons (separate juice from first 1/2 lemon for blueberry syrup)
4 cups water
First, to make a blueberry syrup, heat the blueberries, 1/8 cup sugar, and juice from 1/2 lemon in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then reduce the heat and simmer until thick, 20 to 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar with 1 1/2 cups water and stir to dissolve the sugar and create a simple syrup. (If the organic sugar crystals are brown, this will be a dark brown syrup, but the color will lighten when mixed with the other ingredients.)
Once the blueberry syrup has thickened, strain the blueberries through a fine-mesh strainer, pressing to get all the liquid out, then place the liquid in the fridge and chill until cold (or place the pan in a bowl of ice to chill more quickly).
Pour the lemon juice through a mesh strainer into a pitcher. Add the simple syrup and 2 – 2 1/2 cups water. Add the blueberry syrup, stir it around and then give it a taste. Add more water if it it’s too sweet. Serve over ice.
