RAPID CITY, S.D. - Anya makes a refreshing drink without all the guilt. Follow the recipe to make Easy, Sparkling Blueberry Lemonade.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time :10 mins
Servings: 1 large pitcher, about 6-8 cups

Ingredients

2/3 cup white sugar superfine is best
2/3 cup water
1 and 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice ~4-5 whole large lemons
2 cups ice cubes
3 cups sparkling water or club soda

Instructions

Combine the sugar, water, blueberries, and lemon zest in a saucepan.
Bring to a boil over medium heat and then simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the sugar is melted and blueberries are starting to burst.
Remove from the heat and pass through a fine sieve. Let this blueberry syrup completely cool.
Meanwhile, juice the lemons to get 1 cup lemon juice.
In a large blender, add the blueberry syrup, lemon juice, and ice. Blend until smooth.
Stir in the sparkling water or club soda. Enjoy immediately.

Recipe Notes

If you don't plan on drinking this all in 1 day, keep the juice (blueberry syrup + lemon juice) separate from the sparking water. Add the two together as you want a cup of lemonade.
