I hope you guys aren’t sick of refreshing summer drink recipes… because this one is one of my favorites!  My daughter affectionately calls this the “pink drink” lol.  It’s cool, refreshing, bubbly, and definitely guaranteed to quench your thirst.

I love the sweet homemade blueberry simple syrup (plus the fun pink/purple color it gives the drink), mixed with the tangy tartness of the lemonade, and the bubbly fizz from the club soda… it’s the perfect combination!

This blueberry lemonade is so perfect for summer entertaining!  Imagine you and your guests, sitting and soaking up the sun while holding an ice cold glass of this lemonade.

Now you can serve this blueberry lemonade two ways.  You can pour the blueberry simple syrup into the lemonade pitcher and mix it all together.  Then just pour into individual serving glasses and garnish with a few blueberries, slices of lemon and sprig of mint.

Or, you could serve it like I did…

Just add some ice to a glass, pour a bit of the blueberry simple syrup over the ice, add blueberries, then slowly pour in lemonade and top with a splash of club soda.  Garnish and enjoy!

Either way you’ll end up with a beautiful drink that tastes every bit as amazing as it looks!

  1. Hi this looks delicious. I plan on making this for a baby shower. I have about 15 people coming should I do the recipe x6?? Also, what could I add to this to make it alcoholic??

    • Hi Carrie 🙂 As written, this recipe makes about 8-9 cups. You could add some vodka to this, the amount is totally up to you and your guests, since it wouldn’t add any flavor, just the boozy kick 🙂 For 15 people, I’d plan on people having at least 2 drinks, so that’s 30 servings. I would 4x-6x the recipe just to be safe.

  2. Did I miss something? Did you buy pink lemonade or how did you make it pink?

  3. Thank you for sharing. This looks amazing.
