Blueberry Lemonade



1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar 2 cups water 1 pint fresh blueberries 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 10 big lemons, including pulp but not seeds)


Make a simple syrup by combining 1 cup of the sugar with the water in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the mixture boils. Lower the heat and allow the syrup to simmer for another minute. Remove from heat and let cool. In a blender or food processor, puree the blueberries with 2 tablespoons of sugar. In a pitcher, combine the cooled syrup, lemon juice and blueberry puree to make a base. To serve, pour 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the base into a glass and fill with water. Makes a base for 12 servings.
