Hot Pink Lemonade

★★★★

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups white sugar

Boil one cup of water with the sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until the liquid becomes clear. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice. Pour 7 cups of cool water and ice into a serving pitcher. Add the lemon syrup and blueberries; stir until you get a ‘hot pink’ color.

This was another easy summer drink. I followed the measurements and after giving it a taste determined it was way too tart for my taste and added enough cold water to make a gallon. Fresh blueberries would have been ideal, but I didn’t have any and did have frozen ones hanging out in my freezer. They worked just as well and gave it the same beautiful hot pink color. We took this along to a bbq with friends this weekend.
