With all of the hot days that we have been having lately I have been thinking about ways to cool down and it seemed only natural to use the blueberry syrup in a chilled drink. When it comes to quenching thirst I find that a drink with a slight tartness does the best job so lemonade comes up at the top of the list and I was thinking that a blueberry lemonade would be perfect. Lemonade is actually pretty easy to make from scratch at home! You pretty much just need to squeeze some lemons, add a simple syrup, water and a generous helping of ice. During the summer with all of the amazing fruit around I often like to use a flavoured simple syrup like the blueberry syrup instead of just a plain old simple syrup and they elevate your average lemonade to something magical! Blueberry and lemon are a great flavour combination and it works amazingly well in lemonade form! What a great way to enjoy a momentary respite from the heat on a warm summer day!
Sweet and tart lemonade just bursting with fresh summery blueberry flavour!
