Blueberry Lemonade

Ahoy me hearties.

Did you all do anything fun this weekend?

I was doing some very glamorous stuff.

Like tons of laundry.

Getting rid of clothing that’s too small for my girls.

Food shopping at Target.

And helping my sister make favor boxes for her wedding.

I know. I am totally living the glamorous life.

Blueberry Lemonade (makes about 2 quarts)

Ingredients

½ cup blueberry sauce (recipe below)

1 cup lemon juice (I only had lemon concentrate so I used 2/3 cup)

Juice of 1 orange

¼ cup super fine sugar

6-7 cups water

Directions

Puree blueberry sauce in a food processor. Pour sauce through a fine mesh sieve into a 2 quart pitcher. Add lemon juice,  orange juice and sugar. Whisk thoroughly to combine. Add about 6-7 cups of water or enough to fill the remainder of your pitcher. Stir and chill.
