Serves: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice, for every medium/large lemon you'll get about 1/4 cup lemon juice the variety and size of the lemons used will yield different amounts of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup blueberries *heat them in the microwave for 15 seconds to heat and soften them, they'll release more flavor and color.
  • 4 fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cups water
Instructions
  1. Blend all the ingredients with an immersion blender (or blender) then strain it with a fine sieve, so any basil and blueberry pieces are removed.
  2. Pour over a glass of ice, top with some lemon slices, blueberries, and basil if desired.
  3. For a "Hard" lemonade add a shot or two of vodka or bourbon for a great cocktail, lighten it up with some seltzer.
  4. You can also add plain or lemon seltzer to this lemonade for a less sweet fizzy lemonade drink.
