Another summertime classic is lemonade. Growing up on Martha’s Vineyard, I’d see (and help contribute to!) a number of lemonade stands- whether it was fundraising or just for fun, lemonade making and selling was always a hit. Nostalgic for these lazy summer days!
Now that I’m a bit older, I put my own spin on this drink: blueberries and mint. I use frozen blueberries to act as ice cubes (no diluted drinks here) and give a nice flavor and color- I love how the drink slowly turns into a shade of purple! Muddled mint gives the lemonade an extra boost of flavor. Instead of sugar, I use maple syrup.
Feel free to substitute seltzer instead of water for some bubbles. Or spike it with alcohol if you’re in the mood!
