Blueberry Lemonade

Made these amazing Blueberry Lemonade with Fresh Blueberry Syrup. It is so refreshing, sweet and has the tangy-ness required. It is simply a perfect day to cool down on a hot summer day.

I had a box of fresh blueberries last week and I wanted to make some amazing stuff out of it. I made Blueberry Pie Cookies out of them and wanted to make a drink or a jam too. Its getting hot these days, so I thought I should definitely try a drink. So when life gives you lemons you make Blueberry Lemonade. LOL…

P.S- This Lemonade is definitely different from the conventional Lemonade…But I just had to make these.

Its mid March now… but already getting quite hot outside.You really need a drink to beat the heat during the day. My favorites for this summer have been Tendo- Coconut Water, Salted Fresh Lime Sodas, and Buttermilk. I have been avoiding soft drinks this summer because of the high amount of sugar in them and in order to avoid those unwanted calories. Though Fresh Lime too isn’t all that great but yes at least better than Cold Drinks.

P.S- The Fresh Blueberry Syrup is the start ingredient of this recipe.

Summers scream Lemons to me. Lemons are my ultimate favorite. I love drinks with lemon and mint. This drink is just one of those experiments when i wanted to infuse lemon in my drink.With a simple and homemade blueberry syrup, this drink could not get any easier. It is wonderfully fruity and sweet from the plump juicy blueberries with just enough of a tart kick. And it is really the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day.
