Every year I host a summer party. Well actually this is the second year, but I plan to do one every summer. 😊 Anyway…with trying to make my guests happy I am always trying out easy recipes to serve at my summer gathering. I love blueberry & lemon pound cake so I figured blueberry lemonade would be good too. And it is! It’s such a refreshing summer like drink. Bonus, if you want it to make it an adult beverage, just add rum. It’s basically like a blueberry lemonade mojito. Yum!
So if you are wanting to make this refreshing summer drink follow the recipe below.
4 lemons (1 for garnish)
1 cup of sugar
1 pint of blueberries (1/2 for garnish)
2-3 sprigs of fresh mint
2.5 cups of Country Time Lemonade mix
Note: This recipe makes 3.5 quarts
Step 1: Pour the Country Time Lemonade mix into your pitcher.
Step 2: Cut three of the lemons in half and remove the seeds. Then squeeze all the juice into the pitcher with the mix.
Step 3: Muddle 1/2 of the blueberries. Add 2-3 mint sprigs and the sugar to the muddled blueberries and muddle until mixed well.
Note: if you like your lemonade really sweet add an additional cup of sugar.
Step 4: Using a strainer pour the blueberry mix into the pitcher.
Tip: To make sure I got all the blueberry mix into the pitcher, I used a wooden spoon and pressed down.
Step 5: Add 3.5 quarts of water and stir. Then put the remaining blueberries along with a few lemon slices in the pitcher.
Step 6: Pour into a glass and garnish with a few blueberries, a mint spring and a lemon slice. Enjoy!
If you want to take it a step further, make blueberry and mint ice cubes. I bought these ice cube trays at Amazon when baby K was born so I could make all his food. I knew they would come in handy again. Click HERE to purchase them.
All you do is add 2-3 blueberries and a small mint sprig to each ice cube. Fill the trays with water and freeze. Easy peasy lemon squeeze. See what I did there.
This drink is so refreshing, isn’t too sweet, and looks pretty. What more could you want in a summer-y drink?!
