Blueberry Drink Syrup for Blueberry Iced Tea

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 12 mins

A refreshing change from ordinary iced tea. I bet it would be good added to some other drinks also...blueberry lemonade maybe???


  1. Place blueberries in a saucepan with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
  2. Set sieve or colander lined with cheesecloth (I use a thick papertowel) over a bowl and pour in the blueberry mixture.
  3. Gently press out the juice with a spoon or by twisting the cheesecloth. Discard the pulp and measure the juice into saucepan.
  4. Add 1/2 cup sugar for each cup of juice and cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  5. Bring to a boil and cook 2 minutes.
  6. Chill and pour into covered jar. Store in refrigerator.
  7. Add two tablespoons to each glass of prepared iced tea. Stir well and garnish with a lemon slice.

I just wondered - how much of this syrup would you add to, say, a gallon of iced tea for a good, strong flavor?

My husband loves anything blueberry. I used to make iced tea. It was a little sweet, so will adjust the sugar in the future depending on the sweetness of the blueberries. May also add a splash of lemon juice to the syrup.
