Blueberry-Rosemary Lemonade Gluten-Free Recipe



  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 (2-inch) sprig rosemary
  • 1-1/4 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 15 lemons), strained
  • Ice


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar, rosemary, and 1/4 cup water over medium-low heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the blueberries are soft and broken down, about 10 minutes. Let cool.

  2. Strain the blueberry syrup through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher, gently pressing down on the solids to extract the juice. Stir the lemon juice and 2 cups water into the pitcher. Add ice and serve.
