There's something special about lemon, blueberries and mint together. Tangy, sweet, tart, and refreshing this lemonade is wonderful on a hot afternoon. The recipe also works well with limes instead of lemons. At that point though, you’re awfully close to making a pitcher of blueberry mojitos. So if you feel you need to take the next step, add a cup of white rum to the pitcher.
For Simple Syrup
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
1/ ½ cups water
Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan. Boil until the sugar is melted and the liquid is clear. Set aside.
Simple syrup from above
1 ½ cups fresh lemon juice (Or lime juice if you prefer)
1 lemon sliced (Or lime)
½ cup frozen blueberries
20 small or 10 large mint leaves
5 ½ to 6 ½ cups water to taste
Stir all the ingredients together in a pitcher. Chill until ready to use.
