Blueberry Mint Lemonade

4
Simple syrup is a combination of water and sugar cooked until the sugar dissolves. It is handy to have around for making a batch of lemonade. Make more than you need and keep in the refrigerator for cocktails or to sweeten iced coffee or tea. Recipe from our friends at Driscoll's Berries.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups cold water, divided
  • 1 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 (6-ounce) packages Driscoll's Blueberries, divided
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • Seltzer or soda water (optional)
Method

In a small saucepan, combine sugar, ½ cup water, 1 package blueberries and mint. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves, 3–6 minutes. Gently mash berries with the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Strain blueberry simple syrup through a fine mesh sieve into a tall pitcher and discard solids. Stir in lemon juice and remaining 1½ cups water. Refrigerate until cold.

To serve, add ice cubes to 4 tall glasses. Top each glass with several blueberries and divide lemonade between glasses. Top with seltzer water, if desired, and serve.
