ST. LOUIS —

Blueberry-Ginger Lemonade

This recipe serves 4 people

Ingredients

4oz lemon juice

6oz ginger simple syrup

4oz water

4oz sugar in the raw

2oz sliced ginger

2oz fresh blueberries

20oz distilled water

1 tray of ice cubes

Step 1

Make the ginger simple syrup by placing the water and sugar in a small sauce pan then turning to medium heat. As the syrup is heating up, peel the ginger, and grate it with a microplane into the pot. Once syrup comes to a boil, turn off heat and let sit on burner until room temperature. Refrigerate overnight.

Chef’s Tips: If you need the syrup quickly, place in a metal or glass bowl and place bowl on top of an ice bath stirring frequently.

Step 2

Either cut the blueberries in half, or smash them in the bottom of a pitcher. Add ice, 6oz of prepared simple syrup, 4oz lemon juice, and 20oz distilled water. Stir to combine and enjoy.

Chefs tip: This lemonade will last in the fridge up to a week.
