I can stare at it all day long, but instead I will drink a few tall glasses. Blueberry Lemonade is made with homemade blueberry simple syrup, lots of fresh lemons and a few mint leaves. This easy drink is always a hit, either if you serve it on a hot summer day by the pool, or in the middle of the winter in the comfort of your home. I like to add club soda to my lemonade, just because it makes it taste like a fun mocktail, I guess you can even call this lemonade a mocktail.

How Many Lemons Do You Need To Make Lemonade?

You will need 5-6 lemons, if you find Mayer lemon is season, get those, they are especially fragrant and also sweeter.

How Do You Make Simple Syrup For Lemonade?

You add sugar and water to a medium saucepan and bring it to a boil over low heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then remove from the heat and set aside to cool. If you like mint, I recommend adding 8-10 leaves to the mixture and boil, discard after the mixture has cooled.
