Frozen Blueberry Lemonade

Frozen Blueberry Lemonade

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had family come visit us, so we decided to take a trip to the St. Louis Zoo. For the most part we had a fun time, even if most of the animals seemed to be suspiciously hiding from us.

Then, as predicted, my son decided his legs were incapable of carrying him about halfway through. But they miraculously started working again when the possibility of ice cream came up.

Funny how that works.

This morning I'm still recovering from a day full of zoo-wrangling (the kid kind, not the animal kind), and a night full of sugar-induced, company-crazed, kid hysteria.

Is my child the only one who bounces off the walls anytime someone comes over?

You'd think we kept him locked in the closet. Seriously, between him and my dog, I'm amazed anyone comes over.

So today I'm whipping up a slushy, frosty treat. Something to cool me down from yesterday, something to make me....chill. Frozen Blueberry Lemonade. It's so easy. Just make a batch of my recipe for Mom's Lemonade, some yummy blueberry syrup, add some ice, and you've got a great treat for any hot day. You can mix the syrup in with the frozen lemonade, but I like to add it to the bottom of a glass and then pour the lemonade over it. It makes it feel just a tad more...fancy.

Who doesn't love a "fancy" drink?

Frozen Blueberry Lemonade
Serves: 4   Printable Recipe

2 cup Mom's Lemonade
4 cups ice cubes
4 tbsp homemade blueberry syrup

Blueberry Syrup:
1 cup fresh (or frozen) blueberries
1 cup sugar
fresh squeezed lemon juice

Prepare the syrup: Blend the blueberries in a blender until smooth. Place the pureed blueberries and sugar in a saucepan, bring to a boil and cook for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon into the syrup. You can place the syrup in the refrigerator at this time to cool down.

Prepare recipe for Mom's Lemonade, printable recipe below. I found a good ratio for lemonade to ice was 1:2. Place 2 cups of lemonade and 4 cups of ice cubes in a blender. Blend until ice is well crushed. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the blueberry syrup in the bottom of a frosty glass, then pour frozen lemonade over the syrup to fill up glass.

Note: I used small mason jars to serve, if you use larger glasses you may want to use more syrup in each glass.

This sounds like a great way to "chill" after a hectic weekend! I love how you use homemade blueberry syrup in it!

This looks delicious! I make a similar drink, but it uses Blueberi Stoli. If you like the combination of lemonade and blueberry, definitely give this cocktail a try!

Hi! Lovely post!

In fact, this inspired me to do a blog post of my own featuring this dish that I have matched with an outfit! I've just started my food/fashion blog called Gourmet Sartorialist and It's a pretty random concept, but i'd love for you to have a look! :)
