Wild Blueberry Beginner

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by JanuaryBride

A refreshing non-alcoholic drink perfect for parties or poolside. Recipe adapted from The Everything Cocktail Parties & Drinks Book by Cheryl Charming. Original recipe called for 1/2 T sugar and 1 oz water, but I don't think it's necessary in this drink (just added calories).

Top Review by Katzen

Yumm-O! I've been on a diet cola lark for a while now, so it was about time to try something new, and this did the trick quite nicely! I used frozen wild blueberries rather than fresh ones, as this time of year I didn't think they'd have much flavour in this application. I defrosted them for about an hour, and like Syd, was generous with them. I squeezed a wedge of lemon in as well - lime would work just as well. This was deliciously refreshing!
