What You Need To Gather

Ingredients:

  • 1 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 3 T. fresh mint, crushed
  • 1-2 T. real maple syrup
  • 3 T. honey, (preferably local bees by the beach from Conrad Farms in Tanger Outlet).
  • 3 c. water, divided
  • ½ c. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 c. club soda
  • Ice cubes, to serve

Optional Garnish

  • Mint sprigs
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Lemon wedges

Directions:

1

To prepare the blueberry maple simple syrup, combine the blueberries, mint, maple syrup, honey, and one quarter cup water in a small saucepan set over medium heat.

2

Simmer until the mixture is heated through and starts to thicken, approximately 4-5 minutes. As the mixture simmers, gently press the blueberries with a wooden spoon to release juices while stirring to combine with the other ingredients.

3

Remove from heat and pour through a fine mesh strainer to separate the solids. Reserve remaining liquid syrup and set aside to cool.

4

Add lemon juice and remaining water to a large pitcher. Add blueberry maple simple syrup, to taste, and stir to combine.

5

Fill 4 glasses with ice and fill each 2/3 full with the blueberry lemonade mixture. Top off each glass with some club soda and garnish with sprigs of fresh mint, blueberries, and/or lemon wedges, if desired. Enjoy!
