  • 1 pitcher or carafe
  • 1 citrus press optional, makes juicing the lemons a breeze.
  • 1 small sauce pan for making the simple syrup in.
  • 1 wooden spoon


  • 6-8 lemons
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 5 cups water divided
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Lemon slices and additional blueberries for serving optional


  • Heat 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved
  • Add 1 cup blueberries, bring to a boil and then turn back to a simmer for about 15 minutes.
  • Strain syrup through a fine mesh sieve.
  • Set aside to cool
  • Squeeze lemons until you have 1 cup juice.
  • Once syrup is cooled, place it in a pitcher and add lemon juice.
  • Add 4 cups cold water.
  • To serve, add ice to each glass, pour lemonade, and garnish with a lemon slice and/or blueberries.


  • The amount of lemons needed depends on the size and juiciness of your lemons. It can take 6-8 lemons to get 1 cup of juice.
  • Roll the citrus. Roll the lemons under your palm on the counter top back and forth a few times with a little pressure before juicing them. This loosens them up and releases more juice.
  • Garnish lemonade with fresh blueberries, lemon slices, or a sprig of fresh mint if desired.
  • Make popsicles. The only thing better than a glass of blueberry lemonade is a blueberry lemonade popsicle! Pour the lemonade into molds and freeze. YUM!
