Why You Will Love this Blueberry Drink

What’s not to love about a drink made with fresh blueberry simple syrup and mixed with sweet tart limeade!

  • LOOKS FANCY | Using a lime sugared rim, fancies up this drink nicely and adding a few simple garnishes will make someone feel like they are drinking a delicious tropical drink.
  • EASY | Did I mention that it is really easy, once you have made up the blueberry simple syrup (recipe below) you can make this by the glass or by the pitcher for a fabulous poolside blueberry drink!

Ingredients

The ingredients are really simple, the hardest part is the 20 minutes it might take to make up the blueberry syrup, but I made that ahead of time, it literally will take you less than 2 minutes to make this refreshing lime drink!

Tips & Substitutions

  • Minty? | Muddle a few mint leaves in the bottom of the glass before pouring the blueberry simple syrup.
  • Garnish | For the look in the pictures, I placed fresh blueberries on a pretty skewer and froze them, use to stir the blueberry limeade and they will soften, but also get slightly slushy! YUM!
  • Blueberry Basil Lemonade | In the bottom of the glass before pouring in the syrup, muddle 1-2 basil leaves, then proceed as directed for a sumptuous and fragrant summer drink recipe.
