Summer is almost upon us! We’re ready for the warmer days ahead with a colorful drink made with our Imperfect blueberries. This pretty purple drink is made with a simple homemade blueberry lemon syrup.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c sugar

  • 1/2 c water

  • 1/3 c blueberries*

  • 1/2 c fresh lemon juice*

    *Ingredient available to add to your Imperfect box

Instructions

  • Add the sugar and water to a small saucepan over medium heat. When the syrup comes to a boil, add the blueberries and stir. Simmer for 5 minutes. Cool until room temperature. Stir in lemon juice and strain.

  • To make each drink, add 1/4 c of the blueberry lemon syrup and 1/2 c of water to an ice-filled glass. Feel free to play with the syrup to water ratio to get the sweetness and flavor to your liking!

Recipe Notes and Variations

You can also use honey or agave syrup as a sweetener instead. Just use equal amounts of your choice of sweetener and water. You can also add a splash of rum or tequila to turn this into a fun, vibrant cocktail.
