Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/3 cup mild honey (or sub 1/2 cup+ granulated sugar) see note
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 5-6 cups water divided
  • additional blueberries and lemon slices for garnish

Instructions

  • Bring one cup of water to a boil. Whisk in honey until dissolved. Set aside to cool slightly. If using sugar instead of honey, skip this step.
  • Add blueberries, lemon juice, sugar (if using) and 1 cup water to a blender and blend until pureed. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and discard any solids.
  • Stir together the blueberry puree, honey mixture (if using) and remaining 3-4 cups water. Chill and serve over ice.

Notes

This is a mildly sweet lemonade. If you want it extra sweet, increase the honey from 1/3 to 1/2 cup (note: the honey flavor will be quite strong) OR use 2/3 cup granulated sugar.
