  • 2 cups water
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about
  • 10 big lemons, including pulp but not seeds)
  • For a more subtle blueberry flavor, you can gently mash the berries in a bowl instead of pureeing them. Toss a handful of whole blueberries into the pitcher as a garnish.

    First make a simple syrup by combining 1 cup sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the mixture boils. Lower the heat and allow the syrup to simmer for another minute. Remove from heat and let cool.

    In a blender or food processor, puree the blueberries with 2 tablespoons of sugar. In a pitcher, combine the cooled syrup, lemon juice and blueberry puree. To serve, pour 1/4 to 1/3 cup of base into a glass and fill with water.
