Blueberry Lemonade

A simple recipe for a quick and delicious blueberry lemonade using all fresh ingredients!

With all the blueberries I have right now, I decided to make a Blueberry Simple Syrup first. Of course my main reason for making a blueberry syrup was to use it in this blueberry lemonade! I love flavored lemonades. Regular lemonade is usually too acidic for my taste, but when you water it down a little and add another sweet flavor, it can be so good.

AND so pretty. Case in point:

No fancy equipment or ingredients are required here. Just some fresh lemons, blueberries, water and sugar! 

This is the season for all the delicious fruits I love, and also the season for try-not-to-use-the-oven-so-much. It's supposed to get over 100°F for us this weekend. (So naturally, I'm making croissants this week). While I am taking a break from the oven, however, you can find me with a tall glass of this in my hand if you need me. ;-)
