Sparkling Blueberry Lemonade
Cool down this summer with the ultimate blueberry lemonade! Homemade blueberry syrup mixed with refreshing lemonade, topped off with some bubbly club soda!
Lemonade is super refreshing, and even more so when it’s cool, thirst-quenching blueberry lemonade! Impress your guests or family with this easy to make drink!
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!
I hope you guys give this lemonade a try… it actually uses a similar method to make the simple syrup as the twizzlers strawberry lemonade. Super easy, yet super delicious!
