A sweet and tangy summertime refreshment that brings together zesty lemons and succulent blueberries.

Did you know?

Historians trace the origins of lemonade to medieval Egypt where a wine made from lemon juice, sugar, and water was enjoyed, known as 'qatarmizat'.

On a languid summer afternoon, there's nothing quite like replenishing your spirits with a glass of Refreshing Blueberry Lemonade. This drink merges the humble beginnings of lemonade that date back to Egypt around 500 AD, with the modern twist of blueberries, which have been relished by native North Americans for centuries. Blending the zingy brightness of freshly squeezed lemons with the sweet kiss of blueberries, this lemonade is a delightful dance of flavors. Each sip promises to transport you to a breezy veranda overlooking sun-dappled fields. Imagine the joy of harvesting the ripest berries, the laughter echoing under the cerulean sky as coolness meets warmth on your palate—this is the essence of summer, bottled in a glass.

Whether you're hosting a garden soiree or yearning for a quiet moment with a book, this blueberry lemonade brings the gentleness of a summer breeze to your day. The muddle of blueberries not only imparts a beautiful hue but also a cocktail of health-boosting antioxidants. So, let's raise a glass to long afternoons and the sweet simplicity of nature's bounty!


Crafting this effervescent elixir is as easy as gathering sun-warmed berries from the bush. Here are the natural treasures you'll need:

The blueberries in this recipe don't just add flavor and color; they are also a nod to the blueberry's place in American history, especially in Native American cuisines where they were both eaten fresh and used as a natural flavoring.

  • 200g fresh blueberries, plus extra for garnish
  • 120ml fresh lemon juice (about 4-5 lemons)
  • 80g granulated sugar
  • 1 liter water, chilled
  • A few sprigs of fresh mint, for garnish
  • Crushed ice


Follow these simple steps to create your own pitcher of this quintessential summer drink:

  1. In a small saucepan, combine blueberries and sugar with 240ml of water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until blueberries break down and a syrup forms, about 5 minutes.
  2. Strain the blueberry mixture through a fine mesh sieve, pressing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible, and then let cool.
  3. In a large pitcher, stir together lemon juice, blueberry syrup, and remaining chilled water.
  4. Taste and adjust sweetness by adding more sugar if necessary. If it's too sweet, balance it with a bit more lemon juice.
  5. Fill glasses with crushed ice, pour over the blueberry lemonade, and garnish with fresh blueberries and mint sprigs.
