Summertime demands drinks more than any other time of year. When there is beaching to be done or lounging on the deck to be had, it should all be with a drink in hand. These blueberry spritzers are just the ticket. Made with fresh blueberry simple syrup, they are a vibrant shock of purple with a small kick of acidity from the lemon. Perfect for sipping at the beach.
1 cup blueberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
12 ounces seltzer water
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Combine blueberries, sugar and water in a sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil then reduce to medium low and simmer 10 minutes until the blueberries have released their juices. Strain out the blueberries. To make the drink, combine 1/4 cup of blueberry simple syrup with lemon juice and seltzer water. Stir well and serve over ice.
