Ingredients

  • 1 cup (240ml) water
  • 1 cup (200g) caster sugar
  • 2 cups (300g) fresh blueberries
  • 2/3 cup (160ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 cups (960ml) still or sparkling water

Instructions

  1. Place 1 cup water, sugar and blueberries in a medium sized saucepan, over a low heat.
  2. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally and then cook for 4-5 minutes until the blueberries burst and cook down into a mush. Mixture will be intensely purple and all the sugar should have dissolved!
  3. Place a sieve over a large jug/pitcher and strain the blueberry mixture to get rid of any pips. Discard the blueberry pulp.
  4. Add in the fresh lemon juice and water and stir until combined.
  5. Place in the fridge until chilled, around 2 hours.
  6. Serve with ice cubes, a few blueberries and a wedge of lemon.
  7. Blueberry Lemonade will keep covered, in the fridge, for 3 days.
