Blueberry Lemonade Drink
A sparkling blueberry lemonade mocktail is a lovely way to refresh, when the weather is warm.
This non-alcoholic blueberry lemonade feels like a special treat, since it has bubbles.
And, of course, it also looks pretty with the fresh blueberry, mint and lemon garnish.
The lemonade is sweet, but not super sweet like a sweet tea.
It is sweetened with maple syrup and honey, which gives it a lovely flavor.
If you want to make this vegan, simply swap agave nectar for the honey. This gives it the same amount of sweetness, and the maple flavor still comes through.
This fruity lemonade is great as a mocktail, but you can easily turn it into an adult beverage.
Two ounces of vodka or gin can be added at the end, to give this refreshing drink an adults only kick.
The drink is tasty without the garnish, but I always like the extra flavor and look of a drink with a garnish or two or three.
It is so nice to relax with friends while sipping on a sparkling blueberry lemonade.
