Big Black Dog: Blueberry Lemonade!

July 4, 2008

Blueberry Lemonade!

Okay, here's my beverage for our 4th of July feast and it's blueberry lemonade! And it tastes just yummy too. It came out a bit more purple then I thought it would but it's still a fun drink and my husband, Mr. Tastebuds, loved it.

Blueberry Lemonade
Recipe developed in the kitchen of Big-Black-Dog

6 whole fresh lemons
1 cup sugar
1/2 c. fresh blueberries
Water

Garnish:
1 whole fresh strawberry
Several fresh blueberries
Course sugar **See note

Juice and zest 6 fresh lemons putting aside 1/4 c. of juice. Add enough water to the lemon juice to make 4 cups of liquid.

In a blender process blueberries until smooth. In a small bowl mix the processed blueberries with 1/4 c. lemon juice and strain.

Add 1 cup sugar to the blueberry lemon mixture and pop it in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Let the cool to room temperature.

Add the blueberries to the lemon juice and water and mix well.

Fill a pitcher with ice and pour the blueberry lemonade over the ice and chill.

Moisten edge of glass and dip in course sugar. Garish with a strawberry and blueberries.

Note: I usually do the sugar dipping ahead of time. As the sugar dries it will stick to the edge of the glass. This way you only get a taste of the sugar while sipping your drink.

We've had the most gorgeous summer so far. Just nice warm days and very cool evenings. Even the mosquitos and flies are not biting yet!

Last summer was about the same but I could not enjoy it due to our construction project.

But this year...it's "the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer"!
