Blueberry Lemonade

(originally made 8/2011)

I've become a fruit lemonade addict.   Instead of soda when I go out for meals, I get strawberry, raspberry or blackberry lemonade.    So when I ran across this recipe on Foodgawker, I had to go check out Kokocook's blog.     Super easy to make, though I do admit I wasn't impressed with it on the first day.     It got better after adding lemon zest and letting it sit overnight.    Best served icy cold.

 Blueberry Lemonade

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1                  c  fresh blueberries
     1/2             c  fresh lemon juice
     1/3             c  sugar
  3                  c  water

Place blueberries into a medium saucepan. Pour a little bit of water in the bottom – just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Heat until the water starts to boil. Remove from heat, and crush blueberries with a potato masher. Pour blueberries into a fine mesh sieve. Strain the juice into a large pitcher and discard the solids. Add the lemon juice and sugar; mix until sugar dissolves. Add the water. Chill in the refrigerator. Serve over ice.
