Blueberry Basil Lemonade

Blueberry Basil Lemonade


  • 1 pint fresh blueberries, divided
  • 6-7 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 8-9 cups water, divided
  • 3/4 cup honey


1. Place the basil and one cup of blueberries into a large pitcher. Gently muddle and set aside.

2. Combine the lemon juice, one cup of water, honey, and the remaining blueberries in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a low boil, stirring to dissolve the honey. Once the blueberries have released their juice and color, pour the mix through a fine mesh strainer into the prepared pitcher.

3. Pour the remaining water into the pitcher along with a handful of ice. Add in muddled blueberry-basil mixture. Stir to combine. Serve cold, garnished with lemon slices if desired.
