Sparkling Blueberry Lemonade

  • Sparkling Blueberry Lemonade | the little epicurean

    I can’t pass up a good deal.  Blueberries were 98 cents for 6 oz this weekend. (!!!) You bet I bought a couple pounds.

    When I have an abundance of blueberries, there’s only one thing I want to make.  Blueberry lemonade! This isn’t your average lemonade.  It’s sparkling!  Best of all, (this will make all my pregnant friends happy), it’s also non-alcoholic!

    This is the most uncomplicated lemonade recipe ever.  Unlike other lemonades I’ve made before (spring thyme lemonade, cucumber mint lemonade), this recipe doesn’t require simple syrup.  Instead, I used a little splash of agave syrup (honey also works).  However, if you happen to stumble upon super sweet blueberries, you might not need any sweetener at all.

    You start off by mashing a handful of blueberries in your serving glass with some agave syrup.  Add fresh squeezed lemon juice and a bunch of ice.  Then top it off with sparkling water.  Stir all it all together and stick a straw in it.

    This recipe works for just about any fruit you can easily muddle: raspberries, blackberries, peaches and mango.  It’s a great single serve recipe when you don’t feel like making a large pitcher or you simply don’t have enough lemons.

    Cheers!

    P.S. If you just can’t resist- you can easily make this a boozy blueberry lemonade by adding 2 oz of gin, vodka, or whiskey.  You’re welcome :)

    Love this! So bright and refreshing. Makes me wish it were summer already so that I can drink a big pitcher of this stuff on my balcony after work :D

    I absolutely adore homemade lemonades. This one is gorgeous! I love the deep color the blueberries give.

    Oh I would probably have to make this boozy. Just saying! Gorgeous color! XO

    Look at that color! This maybe my favorite lemonade ever. Definitely going to make it. But i’m afraid the color won’t be as beautiful as yours. Any good tips?

    Sarah @ SnixyKitchen

    98 cents!!! I’d make a pitcher of this if I stumbled across that deal! I love that this is a no-fuss lemonade. I’m all over it. Also – these photos are so pretty, Maryanne!

    I am so wishing for some Spring-time weather and a glass of your sparkling blueberry lemonade in hand MaryAnne!

    Very yummy! I had to cut back on the lemon juice because it was to much but very refreshing otherwise!
