Blueberry Mint Lemonade

Whew, is it hot! Labor Day has come and gone, but here in Lala land, there is no promise of cooler temperatures ahead. No complaints here, but icy beverages are a necessity to beat the heat.

This striking violet concoction gets smiles every time I serve it. Making an infused sugar syrup takes virtually no extra time and adds layers of dimension to drinks. Try using blackberries, raspberries or strawberries in place of the blueberries. You can even experiment with different herbs, such as lemon thyme and basil. Spike the lemonade with vodka or your favorite alcohol and I must warn you, it will be dangerous. This recipe makes enough for a small army, but it will last a few weeks in the refrigerator…or not!

Be sure to try our thirst-quenching Pomegranate-Mint Mojitos.
