Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (or lime)
  • 1 lemon, sliced (or lime)
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 cups of cold water
  • fresh mint leaves (optional)

Directions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, make a "sugar syrup" by combining 1 1/2 cups each sugar and water.
  2. Bring to a boil, remove from heat; set aside until cool.
  3. In a large pitcher, combine the cooled sugar syrup with the remaining ingredients.  
  4. Stir well, chill, and serve.  

Notes:

  • To make Mojitos, add 1 cup of white rum to the recipe above.
  • Don't throw those empty lemon halves away. Freeze them - the next time a recipe calls for lemon zest, pull a frozen half out and zest away! This works for limes and oranges too.
